On Sunday, 8th July Collins stormed to a 9.96 finish, only his second time running under 10 second, but yet, the Kittitian sprinter was still edged out by American Michael Rogers for the gold medal.
The time however would have been a National Record and a new personal best for Collins but because of an illegal wind of +2.4m/s it will not be counted.
Kim Collins is currently in preparing for the 2012 London Olympics where he is expected to compete in the 100 meters and the 4×100 meters. He would be hoping to repeat his success achieved at the 2011 IAAF World Championships where he won medals in both events.
Collins’ next major event however will be the London Grand Prix, to be held later this week, where he is expected to compete against a very strong field.
Official race results are as follows:
1. Mike Rodgers USA
2. Kim Collins SKN
3. Trell Kimmons USA
4. Mario Forsythe JAM
5. Calesio Newman USA
6. Ronald Pognon FRA
7. Brahim Raggui FRA
8. Boubacar Sakho FRA
