The Only Man Ever ....

Eamonn Coghlan is the only man to have broken 4:00 minutes for the mile after the age of 40. The picture to the right shows the 41-year old Dubliner crossing the line at Harvard's indoor track in 3:58.13 on February 20, 1994. He ran his very first sub-4:00 mile on May 10, 1975. That's three months short of 19 years between his first and his final sub-four minute mile.
