Bicester AC’s Jenny Critchley ran a superb 1500 metres in Saturday’s PB Classic meeting held at Milton Keynes to break the under 17 lady’s 1500 metres club which had stood for 16 years.  Finishing 8th in her 1500 metre heat, which included athletes of all age groups, Critchley knocked an impressive 20 seconds off her previous best to break the 5 minute barrier for the first time.  Her finishing time of 4mins 52.69secs was also a national grade 3 effort.  Critchley now holds simultaneously three club under 17 lady records in three different events.
