It is interesting that if everybody agrees that something can't be done (i.e., a sub four minute mile) and then it is done then nobody can make that argument anymore. Ripperologists should take heed.

A very rough calculation shows that the time has gone down by an average of 0.25 seconds per year (note AVERAGE). Suppose a similar average is maintained in future : obviously there will come a time when no one can run any quicker.
