In 1954 the English runner Roger Bannister broke the four minute barrier for the mile with a time of 3:59.4s (3 min and 59.4 sec) In 1999 the Morroccan runner Hicham set a record of 3:43.13s for the mile. If these two runners had run in the same race, each running the entire race at the average speed that placed him in the record books, Hicham would have won, by how many meters?
