Tindle, from Berwick, was representing the Great Britain junior team in the 200m and the 4x100m relay.

The 18-year-old finished a brilliant second in the 200m in a World Junior qualifying time of 20.82 and also moved into second place in the under 20s age group European rankings.

The victory and time in Germany now means he meets all the criteria for making the Great Britain Junior team for the World Junior Championships to be held in Poland.

Indeed his performance was good enough to have won the bronze medal at the Olyimpic Trials which were held in Birmingham the same day. He now goes to seventh on the all-time list in Scotland for 200 metres seniors which includes the likes of Olympic champion Alan Wells and Olympic athletes Cameron Sharp and David Jenkins.

Coaches Henry Gray from Eyemouth, Bruce Scott from Earlston and strength and conditioning coach Mark Learmonth from Berwick, are over the moon with Tindle’s performance and the fact that he has achieved this season’s goal of making the Great Britain junior team for the World Junior Championships in Poland next month.
