Kim Collins Day observed in SKN

(Today) August 25th was observed as Kim Collins Day.

 

The observance was declared almost 20 years ago by the Government, in light of the former Sprinter’s achievements.

 

Kim Collins has several track and field accomplishments including gold in the 100 meters and 200 meters at the Central American and Caribbean Games (CAC) in 2001 in Guatemala City; in 2002, he won gold in the 100 meters at the Commonwealth Games in Manchester, England; he won gold in the 100 meters at the World Championships in 2003 in Paris, France; and gold again in the 100 meters at the CAC Games in St. George’s, Grenada.

 

On April 5th 2015, during the 44th CARIFTA Games in St. Kitts, the Silver Jubilee Stadium in Bird Rock was renamed the Kim Collins Athletic Stadium in honour of Mr. Collins’ achievements.
