TEEN track star Jessica Judd is continuing to re-write the record books. The 16-year-old, from Canvey, ran the fastest 1,500m by an under-17 woman in UK history on Saturday night. It means the Castle View school student now holds the UK all-time record for 3,000m, 1,500m and is second in the 800m list.
After a heavy race programme in recent weeks, Judd is likely to spend the next few weeks training before returning to action at the English Schools Championships in the first week of July.
The following week she will head to Lille, France, for the World Youth Championships.
