Host: Martin Samuels, MD Guest: Sir Roger Bannister, MD Does overcoming defeat and reversal in sports lead to success in career? Joining host Dr. Martin Samuels is Sir Roger Bannister, who as a medical student in May, 1954, shattered a barrier in athletics that many believe stands as one of the greatest athletic accomplishments of the 20th century. But success did not come easily to Sir Roger. He and Dr. Samuels discuss breaking the record, and then choosing to retire as a running and begin his "real" career as a world class neurologist.
