Former world 100m champion Kim Collins is expecting a very good 100m outing at Saturday’s (May 2) International Meeting Region de Guadeloupe, in Guadeloupe.
According to Collins, winner of the 2003 World Championships 100m title in Paris, “I’m looking forward to put the 100m together and try and see where I am at in terms of running a good 100m this season.
Collins, who recorded the four fastest 60m indoor times this year of 6.47, his season best, Saturday’s race inside the Baie-Mahault Stadium will tell exactly what shape he is in at this point of the season.
“I think I am in good shape but its just a matter of how the body feels on competition day because sometimes you think you doing well and (that’s not so).
“It was a long travel so I am trying to make sure the body holds up long and rub a good race,” said Collins, who helped St. Kitts and Nevis to bronze in the 4x100m at the 2011 World Championships in Daegu.
As for his fans here in Guadeloupe, Collins said “they can expect a very good race, looking at the condition and the completion.”
