FORMER Scottish sprint champion Cameron Tindle has returned to winning ways after claiming the national universities crown at the weekend.

The 20-year-old from Berwickshire was widely regarded as one of the country's most exciting prospects during his teenage years.

Despite claiming countless age-group titles in Scotland as well as podium places in UK and World championships, he dropped out of athletics last year.

But he has now marked his return to the track with a stunning win against a strong field at Grangemouth.

Opting only to run the 200 metres, Tindle eased through the heats before producing a 21.58 seconds winning time in the final.

Krishwan Aiken was three metres back in second with Lewis Bell claiming third.

Cameron will now aim for the England Under 23 Championships at Bedford in June, which doubles up as the European Under 23 trials.

Coach Bruce Scott from the TLJT club told us: "The combination of overall fitness and enough speed reserve through the rounds is what is required.

"Cameron is very capable if he can get down to the form he showed in 2016 when he reached the final of the Under 20s World Championship 200 metres and produced his lifetime best of 20.71.

"In the eight weeks that remain, we will work very hard on his overall race strategy, in particular his top speed.

"This was a good start for us today and we both know what is required now.

"It’s very much down to Cameron now to get that consistency in training. If the work has been done then he can produce the big runs when it matters.”
