This follows his impressive performances at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Samoa last September.

Tindle will receive £1000 from the fund, which helps prospective Commonwealth Games athletes, under the age of 26, towards their preparation for events leading up to the Bahamas 2017 Commonwealth Youth Games, and the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Tindle made his mark at the Youth Games with a bronze in the 100m and 4th place in the 200m. He has delivered a string of Scottish records during the 2016 indoor season, and in February he lowered not only the 200m junior record, but also the senior mark, a remarkable feat at just 17 years of age.

“This funding will be essential to my development and goals,” said Tindle.
