Kim Collins Does It Again: Kittitian Athlete, Kim Collins on Sunday recorded his personal best in the 100m event at the NRW Gala in Bottrop, Germany. His victory of 9.93 seconds, ( – in 1.9 meters per second tailwind), was so unexpected, it marked the first time a 40 year old has accomplished such a feat.
In responding to questions asked, the Kittitian said, that “the track is fast, the crowd was amazing; the best conditions for top performance,” said the world champion of 2003. Such a performance improved the old stadium record at 18 and his personal best by three hundredths; thus Collins improved his personal best of 9.96 that he ran in London in July of 2014.
Second and third place went to Joe Morris and Adam Gemili respectively. Joe Morris of the USA ran in a time of 10.15 sec and Olympic semifinalist Adam Gemili of UK posted a time of 10.19 sec.
Collins is now the second fastest man, only behind Femi Ogunode of Qatar, 9.91, in the world this year.
