The concept of running a sub four minute mile was considered a pipe dream.

Interestingly enough, 30 other runners broke the barrier the same year! “If he can do it, I can do it.”
Michael Jordan sees the three pointer before he turns it loose and you hear swish.
Tiger sees the ball drop into the cup before he takes the putt.
