Tindle, who is 17, won the bronze medal in the 200m in a new pb of 21.46, which was a new Scottish under 20s’ record.

The standard of the final was of the highest calibre, with three world junior finalists in the line up, and all three won medals.

The outstanding Toby Harris won gold, Oliver Bromby won silver, and Tindle bronze.

All three medallists are also in the Great Britain relay squad for the World Junior Championships in Poland later this summer.

The Scottish under 20s 200m record that Tindle broke had been held by another local athlete, Ian Horsburgh, who was trained by Henry Gray senior.

Tindle’s coaches are Henry Gray junior, from Eyemouth, and Bruce Scott of Earlston.

The teenager now goes forward to the British Senior Championships in Sheffield where he could well challenge Ryan Oswald’s Scottish senior 200m indoor record of 21.3.
