I think I remember learning that Sebastian Coe broke the four minute mile using interval training. It was believed at the time that it was impossible for the human body to run a mile in less than four minutes.

Seb Coe trained using running intervals at or above the four minute mile pace, interspersed with active recovery, then gradually reduced the recovery interval he had removed it completely.
