What is everyone's thought on the recent increase in the number of men breaking the 4 min mark?

Ohio had none from in '94 to '02. Since then 17 has run under 4 which includes 3 for the 1st time in the last 2 months.

The first reason has to me more talented runner than ever before. Besides that what are the biggest reasons.

More mile races so more opportunities?
More focus on breaking 4?
Better training/nutrition/equipment?
Now that more men are breaking 4 mentally it is not as intimidating therefore easier to run that fast? Plus just to compete for win now have to run that fast.
