Cameron Tindle takes the 90mtrs sprint at Langholm Games

The sprinter, who recently made the final of the World Junior Games in Poland, won the 90m sprint championship at Langholm on Friday, edging out Allan Hamilton in a photo finish.

Afterwards he said: “I was pushed all the way by Allan Hamilton and it was a real tight finish. I wasn’t quite at my best as I haven’t quite felt right this week and have only been able to train once.”

Coached by Bruce Scott and Henry Gray, Tindle did not run in the 90m handicap as following his title run he was heading to catch a plane to Dublin, where he was competing in an amateur event on the Saturday.

Hamilton, who was making his first appearance on the Border Games circuit, made it a night to remember when he went on to win the top prize of 1,000 guineas by breaking the tape in the 90m handicap final.
