After a superb first round win in his heat on Monday evening Tendai followed up with another amazing performance to take the bronze medal in the 1500m final at the European U18 championships in Jerusalem.
After a brisk early pace 3 athletes made a break on the last lap with Niels Laros (Netherlands) eventually taking the win and Tendai and Andreas Fjeld Halvesson (Norway) in a close battle down the home straight for 2nd and 3rd.
Tendai’s GB team mate Corey Campbell, Team East Lothian, also made the final finishing in a fine 6th position.
This was a very high quality field with the championship record broken twice during the championships and the top 6 finishers coming in below the previous championship best set in Gyor by fellow Scot Kane Elliot. It underlines what a great achievement this is as well as invaluable experience competing at this level. Everyone at the club is rightly proud of his achievement.
It follows months of work and preparation leading upto the event and thanks go out to all those who supported and his coaching team at Harmeny AC.
