Harold Abrahams, Olympic Gold (and Sub-4 Timer!)

Harold Abrahams was the timer at Roger Bannister's Sub-4 Mile.  Harold was the runner depicted in the movie "Chariots of Fire" who used the Italian professional coach, Sam Mussibini.  He was victorious in the 1924 London Olympic 100 M.

He subsequently was a commentator for the BBC and a noted Olympic historian, in addition to timing that memorable race.
