Leicster City, The Game Changers


Leicester City have changed the world. Now ANY club can win the Premiership. It’s the Roger Bannister effect.

For years, experts said that the human body was simply not capable of running a mile in under four minutes, it was impossible. In the 1940’s, the mile record was pushed to four minutes and one second, where it stood for nine years. Runners struggled with the idea that, just maybe, the experts had it right.

On May 6, 1954, Roger Bannister broke the 4-minute barrier. Then soon, more runners did it. Barely two months later, during the 1954 British Empire and Commonwealth Games hosted in Vancouver, B.C., two competing runners, Australia’s John Landy and Bannister, both ran the distance in under four minutes. Less a year after Bannister’s accomplishment, more runners had done it. Now, it’s almost routine. It’s as if the world’s runners believed it couldn’t be done so they couldn’t do it. Once they realised it could be done, they did it.  

At the beginning of the season, bookmakers were giving odds of 5000 to one for Leicester City to win the Premiership. Now they’re the champions, lots of so-called ‘smaller’ clubs will be able to win it because it’s no longer “impossible”. It’s all about belief.

Is there something in your life that you’ve given up on because you think it’s “impossible”?

Maybe it’s not, maybe your world can change and you can change the world too.
