Gavin Meets Sir Bannister

This morning Gavin had quite a bit of a thrill! A keen track and field athlete, Gavin had the good luck to strike up a rapport with the Pembroke College Porter’s. Speaking to them of his admiration for Sir Roger Bannister – the first man to break the four minute mile, distinguished neurologist, and prior Master of the college – the porter’s took it upon themselves to organise a private meeting between the two at Sir Bannister’s Oxford home.

Let’s hope Gavin was inspired, and takes Sir Bannister’s ethos of academic and athletic excellence to heart!

Waiting to see an archive of Sir Bannister’s

“Here’s a book about Sir Bannister…”

“And in 10 minutes, a taxi will arrive outside…”

“to drive you to Sir Bannister’s house…”


“where you will have a private meeting with him!”
