Kim Collins wins silver at World Indoor Championships

Justin Gatlin, the US 60m champion won the World Indoor gold, during the evening session of the first day’s competition at the 9th IAAF World Indoor Championships in Athletics, at the National Indoor Arena.

In the final it was Kim Collins (SKN) the Commonwealth100m champion who got away the quickest, running in lane two.  He had a best start with a reaction time (0.109) teetering on the brink of a false start.  However, within 20 metres it was Gatlin who cruised into the lead and was never headed, crossing the line in 6.46. Collins kept his shape through to the tape for the silver in a National Record of 6.53s, with Gardener, the double European 60m champion taking bronze (6.55).

(L - R)  Kim Collins (SKN), Justin Gatlin (USA),  Jason Gardener (GBR)
