Cameron Tindle of Berwick was the star of the day at Tweedbank on Saturday as the Open Athletics season began in earnest.
Coached by Henry Gray, Tindle has all the makings of reaching the top level in athletics.
The Berwick teenager blitzed to a splendid win in the youths’ 90m handicap at Tweedbank Games last weekend.
Competing from minus one metre, Tindle clocked up a time of 9.87 seconds. Daisy Peacock of Leithenburn (19m) was second and Cameron Fisher of Jed AC (10m) was third.
Tindle then came within inches of winning the 200m handicap from a handicap of minus 7m – phenomenal running indeed. He is certainly one to watch this year.
And winning the adults’ sprint handicap was Richard Elland of Broughton (16m).
He beat TLJT’s Darren Tomlinson (12.5m) and Euan Pettigrew of Jed AC into second and third respectively.
