Summary Before the war, Britain had bloomed best in its sporting tradition, but the amateur accolades leading to Olympic accomplishments were blown off the podiums in the 1952 Helsinki games. Roger Bannister was the epitome of that disappearing scholar-athlete ideal. Can the lunchtime-trained runner immersed in his medical school studies inject the booster shot into Britain's flagging but still flickering morale?
