TRACK: Collins Sets Season's Best

Commonwealth Games champion Kim Collins, of St. Kitts-Nevis, ran a personal season's best sub-10 clocking for third spot in the men's 100 metres at the Zurich Golden League meet on Friday night. Collins clocked 9.99 seconds, chasing Americans John Capel and Justin Gatlin on the fifth stop of the IAAF's Golden League series, where Bahamian Chandra Sturrup and Brigitte Foster of Jamaica also snatched top-three finishes. In a thrilling men's 100-metre finish, Capel and Gatlin could not be separated and tied for first in 9.97 seconds, with Collins only 0.02 seconds behind, dipping below his previous season's best of 10.00 seconds.

Kim Collins captured the 100m Gold in 10.13s, at the CAC Games in Grenada, on Friday 4th June, defeating the Trinidad speed "twins" of Darrel Brown (10.17s) and Marc Burns (10.29s).  Kim qualified 2nd overall, for the finals (10.14s) and fifth overall for the semifinals (10.44s).

Kim is a possible double GOLD medallist, given his time in the 200m semifinals of 20.61s.

Kim wins at the Prefontaine Classic

For the second successive weekend - after he defeated reigning Olympic and world title holder Maurice Greene in Portland - Kim Collins mastered the mainly US opposition, tying the meet record in the process.  " Last July's Commonwealth gold medallist won in 10.00 seconds ahead of Darrel Brown. Trinidad's 18-year-old world junior champion Brown sliced one-hundredth of a second off his personal best with 10.08secs, ahead of the 2002 world bronze medallist Bernard Williams, who finished in 10.12secs.

"I haven't done anything yet to earn respect," said Collins, who didn't arrive in Eugene until late Friday night after his plane was delayed. "You have to win something like the World Championships to earn that. But this is a good start."

Posted by NAAA on 5/19/2003, 40KBAn upset 100m win by Kim Collins of St. Kitts and Nevis, highlighted the 13th adidas Oregon Track Classic near Portland, Oregon.  Kim Collins, the 2001 World Championships 200m bronze medallist led from the gun en-route to a 10.21 win in the 100m into a strong 1.3 m/s headwind.

“It was really a great race,” said Collins, last year's Commonwealth Games 100m champion. “It was a very tough field, and it's all about who's having a good day. Today was my day.”

Reigning World and Olympic 100m champion Maurice Greene never recovered from a very slow start, finishing a distant third in 10.33 in his 100m season debut.

“I did not get a good start, and I felt a little tight at the end,” said Greene, whose portrait graced the meet poster. “They ran a good race, and I'm not happy with today's result,” he added. Since 1999, Greene has run slower only twice, but he didn't appear too concerned. “I'm just getting the cobwebs out.”

Was Collins surprised with his win? "No, I wouldn't say that because that's what I've come to do,” said Collins, who was seventh and sixth respectively in the 2000 Olympic and 2001 World 100m finals, but he added that he didn't think he was prepared for the upset.

“I'm skeptical about the whole season because actually my training's not been going as well as I wanted it to, so I'm very surprised and pleased with the performance so far.”

The results were as follows, with a wind of -1.3 m/s:

  1. 1.  Kim COLLINS, SKN, 10.21
  2. 2.  John CAPEL, USA, 10.28
  3. 3.  Maurice GREENE, USA, 10.33
  4. 4.  Ramon CLAY, USA, 10.38
  5. 5.  Lindel FRATER, JAM, 10.46

Last year, Collins placed 2nd with a time of 10.04s, in the event won by Coby Miller in 9.98s.

1. Coby Miller, U.S., 9.98 (Wind: +1.4)
2. Kim Collins, St. Kitts & Nevis, 10.04
3. Shawn Crawford, U.S., 10.09

KIM COLLINS WINS GOLD AT COMMONWEALTH GAMES
 
 
27 July 2002

 
 
 
 
Extract:   Kim Collins of St Kitts and Nevis  won the 100m final in a dramatic race which saw England’s two hopefuls pull up with injuries at virtually the same time. 
 
Collins (9.98), who is the first athlete to win a Commonwealth Games medal for his nation, was delighted with his performance.  “I feel like I represent not just St Kitts and Nevis but the whole Caribbean. I want to say a special thanks to the fans here. They’ve cheered us all along even though we’re not all English.”  Collins set a new National record in the process and possibly a new OECS record as well.

Rivals Dwain Chambers and Mark Lewis-Francis were put under a huge strain as Collins made a magnificent start out of the blocks. The pressure proved too much and both pulled up before the finish.  Kim stated that "I can understand it because you can push yourself too hard and then it takes its toll because your body is pushed beyond its limits".  Uchenna Emedolu (10.11) of Nigeria took silver and Canada's Pierre Browne (10.12) claimed bronze.

Kim futher stated that "I was just so relaxed, and as I said yesterday, it is not good to shine too brightly too early - your wings can be clipped.  I wore my lucky socks today and they more than played their role - I'm tempted never to wash them again."  He exulted "I don't think (St. Kitts & Nevis) ever had anything like this - I think the people will go crazy and be celebrating".  "Nobody else was expecting it - especially from an island nobody has probably ever heard of"

England teammate Jason Gardener (10.22) who came 6th said: “There was lot of pressure on Dwain and Mark, but you can’t under-estimate the rest of the Commonwealth. This was a world class field and there are no easy races.  For me it was great to get to the final considering that I struggled in the early rounds. All credit to Collins. He needed to run under 10 secs, and he did just that.”

TRACK: Collins Takes Second At Pre Prefontaine Classic

Tim Montgomery, left, wins the men's 100-meter dash in a time of 9.97s, at the Prefontaine Classic. Montgomery edged out, from left to right, Kim Collins (9.98s), JJ Johnson and Aziz Zakari.

Kim Collins was a silver medallist at this weekend's Prefontaine Classic Grand Prix track & field meeting in Eugene, Oregon, but he missed out on an Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) record due to an illegal trailing wind. The St. Kitts-Nevis native and World championships medallist, clocked 9.98 seconds to finish a hundredth of a second behind American Tim Montgomery, and ahead of another American, Bernard Williams (10.07).  The times were aided by a wind of 3.5 meters per second, 1.5 over the limit.

Portland.  IAAF Grand prix 2.  Coby Miller surprised a strong field in the men's 100 meters with his victory in 9.98 seconds, which equaled his personal best from the semifinals at the 2000 NCAA Division I Championships. Miller returned to competition this indoor season after suffering a broken fibula in his left leg in winning the 2001 USA Indoor 60m title. Kim Collins of Saint Kitts & Nevis was the runner-up in 10.04, with 2001 World Outdoor 200m champion Shawn Crawford third in 10.09.

2001 KIM COLLINS MEET RESULTS
 
 
August 5 -9, 2001
 
100 metres Finals

Kim Collins placed sixth in the historical 100 metres Finals, and my prediction of a World Record would have come true if not for muscle problems in Maurice Greene’s quads and hamstrings at the 80 metre mark.  But what a race!  Five finalists under 10 seconds, and Maurice Greene with the third fastest time in history with 9.82s. Greene would have run at least my predicted 9.77s without the muscle twinges, that visibly slowed him in the final 20 metres of the World Championships marquee event.

Congratulations again to Kim Collins of St. Kitts/Nevis, who placed 6th in 10.07s, a valiant and laudable effort in this highly competitive field. Kim will return with the other sprinters for the heats of the 200 metres, scheduled to start on Tuesday, 7th August.

 

200 Metres Finals

KIM COLLINS DOES IT!!  

The entire country is celebrating, though somewhat belatedly, as Kim Collins wins the Bronze medal in the World Championships 200 metres. Kim stormed around the unpopular Lane 1, to snatch a bronze medal in a new National Record of 20.20s, after a photo-finish review by the officials. Initially it looked as though he had won the silver medal based on the Television coverage, but the officials initially placed him in the fourth position. A second or third look at the photo-finish picture, however forced them to concede that Kim Collins had actually tied with Shawn Crawford (USA) for the bronze medal.


JULY 20 - 22, 2001

Kim Collins, Olympian, has brought the Federation of St. Kitts & Nevis it's first Gold Medal in the history of the C.A.C. Athletics Championships.   His gold winning performance was a spectacular feat.  Kim shatterred the eighteen (18) year old Championships 100m record of 10.16s, by running a personal best time of 10.04s last night in Guatemala City's Mateo Flores International Stadium. Collins beat his previous best time of 10.06s, run at the IAAF Grand Prix meet at Lausanne, Switzerland on 4th July, 2001.   Collins dominated the event with a scintillating start and powered down the 100m straight ahead of Jamaican, Julien Dunkley, (10.35 seconds) and Trinidadian, Jacey Harper (10.39 seconds).  Collins had won silver two years ago behind Barbados' Obadeli Thompson in the 1999 Championships in Barbados.

This performance gives Kim the 7th best time in the world this year and augurs well for his chances at making the finals at the World Championship in Canada.  He would need a superlative effort however, to medal in the World Games scheduled to commence on August 3rd in Edmonton.

DAY 2 -   SUNDAY JULY 21, 2001

On Day 2, Kim won his semi-finals in the 200m with a timeof 20.77s, sufficient to lead all qualifiers into the finals.  Keita Cline (BVI) was third (3rd) in the same heat in a time of 20.98s.  The next fastest qualifier was Renward Wells of the Bahamas in 20.79s, followed by Juan Pedro Toledo of Mexico in 20.92s.

Kim Collins doubles at the CAC Championships running  20.55s and winning the 200m, 2 years after Obadelai Thompson of Barbados did the same feat in his home country.  Collins displayed his Championship form by winning the event, followed by Juan Pedro Toledo of Mexico in 20.82 seconds and third placed Keita Cline of the British Virgin Islands, in 20.88 seconds.


May 25, 2001

TCU's  sprinting star Kim Collins have been named the South Central Region Male Outdoor Athlete of the Year by the United States Track Coaches Association. Collins shares the honor with Walter Davis of LSU. He will receive his award at the coach's banquet on May 29 in Eugene, Oregon. He is eligible for Athlete of the Year honors.

The Frogs, led by Collins, will be one of the favorites to capture the men's outdoor track and field crown next week in Eugene, as the official participants list has been announced. Collins enters the national meet with the fastest time recorded in the 100 meters, a 9.99 clocking on April 7, and the second fastest time in the 200 meters, a 20.34 mark on May 19. The senior from St. Kitts was the 2001 NCAA indoor champion at both 60 and 200 meters. Collins will also anchor TCU's 4x100-meter relay team, which owns the nation's fastest time this spring at 38.68 seconds.


March 9, 2001

FAYETTEVILLE, ARK.   Kim Collins sprinted to a first place finish in the 200 meter dash, highlighting a strong showing by the TCU team in the first day of the NCAA Division I Track & Field Championships held Friday at the Randal Tyson Track Center in Fayetteville.

Collins, who had the fastest preliminary time of 20.58, improved that mark to 20.55 in nipping Washington’s Ja’Warren Hooker by one one-hundreth of a second in the finals. Collins’s time was the fifth fastest recorded in the world this season. He becomes just the second Horned Frog to capture an indoor individual title, joining Raymond Stewart, who won the 55-meter dash in 1989.

"I wouldn’t feel any different if I would have lost, but I’m happy that I won," said Collins. "If we would race tomorrow, I might finish last, that’s how tough the competition is. The main thing that prepares me is the practice sessions. It feels great to be up there in the top five in the world - all of those guys are great athletes."
