Any doubts there might have been about who is Scotland’s fastest sprinter were blown away when Cameron Tindle (Edinburgh AC) captured an impressive double at the Scottish Under-20 Championships at Grangemouth Stadium.

The 17-year-old beat Ross Maxwell, the Scottish senior 100 metres champion, and won emphatically, clocking 10.88 seconds into a stiff headwind of -2.6 metres per second. Maxwell was timed at 11.07.

Tindle went on to win the 200m in 21.46 secs into a -1.5 mps wind with his nearest rival Kade Thomas almost a full second behind (22.41).

Pitreavie’s Jack Lawrie added the 400m junior hurdles title to his senior accolade, winning in 53.24 secs and also took the 110m hurdles in 14.68 secs.

But his bid for a treble was thwarted when he was beaten into second place in the 400m flat in 50.14 by Guernsey’s Cameron Chalmers (49.12) with Sandy Wilson (EAC) third in 50.19.

Other Capital U-20 winners included Jonathan Currie (EAC) who took the 800m in 1:59.25 and Stephanie Fowler (EAC) who won the hammer with a throw of 42.45m; while in the under-15 events EAC team-mates Dean Anderson took the high jump (1.75m), Rory Jackson the shot (13.64m), Cameron Sweeney the discus (34.89m) and Eloise Walker the 1500m (4:48.46)..
