Have your say

Edinburgh Athletic Club team-mates Cameron Tindle and Michael Olsen claimed silver and bronze medals in the 200 metres at the British Under-17 Indoor Championships in Sheffield.

For Berwick-on-Tweed schoolboy Tindle, who is coached by Henry Gray, it was a silver double.

Narrowly beaten for the 60m title on Saturday in a Scottish age group record 6.98 seconds, erasing the previous best of 7.01 held jointly by Scott Fraser and Ryan Oswald, Tindle came back to beat his 200m best as well, but this time lost out to Oliver Brumby (Southhampton) who was timed at 21.99 secs.

Tindle clocked 22.08, while Olsen, in third place, clocked 22.70, having set a new best of 7.03 seconds twice in the 60m.

Another club member, Ben Robbins, was fourth in the Under-20 400m in 49.30, while Kathryn Gillespie (Central) was third in the Under-20 800m in 2:11.00.

Scottish Under-20 cross country champion Laura Dunn (EAC) added the national Under-20 indoor 3000m title at the Emirates Arena, Glasgow yesterday in a time of 9:35.41.

The recently-crowned Scottish senior men’s cross country champion Callum Hawkins (Kilbarchan) won the men’s race in 8:22.50.
