Security Makes Kim Collins Wait 4 hours Before Allowed into Athletes Village

But even a personality like Kim could get really frustrated if they are forced to go through the horrors that he had to endure in London, while simply attempting to head to the Athletes village, which is his home for the next two weeks of the 2012 Olympics.

According to a report that has appeared in the Daily Telegraph of London, “Kim Collins, the former 100m world champion, has criticised security staff after it took him four hours to get into the athletes’ village.”

The article went on to state that the St Kitts and Nevis sprinter, who won gold at the 2003 Athletics World Championships in Paris, described his wait on Twitter. He said the security was “broken and dysfunctional”.

“In short. It took me over 4hrs this morning to get inside the village. I was freezing. I’m a tropical animal,” he wrote.

“I was just trying to get to the village. But no one knows anything, nor could they help. I was shocked to experience that. In London.”

Jonathan Edwards, the British former triple jumper, apologised to Collins, tweeting: “Sorry mate, shouldn’t have happened.”

Kittitian and Nevisian fans are just hoping that Kim would keep his usual cool and not allow such ordeal to affect his preparations for the start of the athletic events at the Games.
