Teen Thief Gets Outrun By A Pensioner

 

Updated : Feb 15, 2009

A schoolgirl thief got more than she bargained for when she tried to run off with the handbag of a former championship sprinter.

Jean Hirst (72) allowed three teenage girls into her car to help her with directions after getting lost in Long Eaton, Derbyshire. When one of the girls tried to run off with her bag, Jean, who was once a county 100 yards champion and qualified for the final of the All England Schools Championship, gave chase.

Mrs Hirst, from Mansfield, said: "Suddenly I felt 18 again. The adrenaline just kicked in and I seemed to turn back the years. She had a head start but I covered 70 yards in about 15 seconds and was within two strides of her when she looked over her shoulder and saw me. She probably thought I was an easy target but she shouldn't have judged a book by its cover. The look on her face was one of sheer amazement and she just threw my bag aside."

VeryHappyPig says way too go, Jean, you are some woman!!
