Kim Collins shines at 2011 National Invitational Meet

BASSETERRE, St. Kitts – LIKE old wine, 2003 World Champion Kim Collins mellows with age as the sprint ace demonstrated that he is still the best in the Federation and a force to contend with in the international arena.

Participating in yesterday’s (June 19) Digicel-sponsored National Invitational Track and Field Competition at the Silver Jubilee Stadium, Collins proved that age is really just a number after schooling younger athletes who competed with him.

The Kittitian sprint ace clocked 10.06 seconds in the 100m Men’s Senior (open) ahead of Olympic youth record holder Aaron Armstrong of Trinidad and Tobago with a time of 10.27 seconds.

The 35-year-old fell short of his personal best of 9.98 seconds.

Coming out of retirement in early January, Collins continues to have an impressive season after clocking 10.05 seconds in May at the FBK Games.

Prior to that performance, he clocked 6.60 seconds in the Moscow 60m Open.

At yesterday’s meet, Collins also ran in the 4x100m Relay Senior (open).

He started the leg with Antoine Adams on the second, Delwayne Delaney on the third and BJ Lawrence as anchor.

Spectators classified the race as the best in the meet as team St. Kitts-Nevis fought gallantly but was edged out by Trinidad and Tobago with a time of 40.57 seconds against the home team’s 40.59.

An outstanding performance was also seen by Tameka Williams, who clocked 11.33 seconds to triumph over fellow Kittitian Virgil Hodge with 11.39 in the 100m Women’s Senior (open).
