    My initial answer would be “none”. He came forth in 1500m (1952 Olympics) and then only broke the 4 minute mile on the 1954 Iffley Road Track. He went on to pursue his career in medical research. I cannot remember him competing in the olympics after that.

      Not one.

      He came in a close fourth at his only Olympics and then retired to spend more time on medicine.
