Personally, I don't think canning extreme-sports "youngest person ever to..." records of this sort is such a bad idea.
But I sure hope that young Jess & her team have known this all along.
Note later - Pat from Desert Sea left a very nice clarification in comments - seems that everyone involved in both of the teenagers' attempts would have been totally aware that they were chasing a record-with-air-quotes. This article gave me the impression that this was somehow actual new-type news. Pat's explanation makes it all make a ton more sense.
