Where Is He Now?
Bannister and his wife, Moyra, live in Oxford, about a mile from the Iffley Road track where he set his record. Bannister told Deford, "It was a significant event in my life to come back to Oxford, where I had been so very happy." He continues to work in the field of neurology, and occasionally speaks at running events.
According to Deford, Bannister said, "Running was only a small part of my life. Even now, my friends and colleagues just accept the fact that in my life, I happened to do this one thing."
