Collins, who along with his team-mates is now in England for the summer Games, also made it clear that he is eyeing his chances to win a medal, thus placing in the top 3 positions.
Collins was speaking to reporters in London when he re-affirmed his commitment to the sport, which has given him so much over the past 15 years. This will be his fifth Olympics, having begun his journey at the 1996 Atlanta Games, in the USA.
Since then he has gone on to excel throughout the world, making a name for himself in 2003 when he stunned the athletics community internationally by winning the gold medal in the World Games in France. He is also a former Commonwealth Games 100m champion.
Last year, he and his countrymen on the 400 x 100m relay team blasted their way to the bronze medal in the World Games in South Korea. He has proven time and time that despite his age (35) he continues to be a force to be counted on the international scene and can never be excluded from the possibilities of making it in the top three.
