St. Kitts and Nevis, (SKNP) – During an interview with EME news the Kittitian, 2003 100m world champion, Kim Collins, has partly credited yoga and pilates for his age-defying exploits this season; a season where he has captured the hearts of many.

Clocking his personal best of 9.93 this season, Collins was favoured to win the 100m yesterday at the IAAF Diamond League Series held in Olso, Norway.

However 60 meters into the race, Collins experienced a cramp in his left groin which of course hampered his chances of finishing in the top three.

With sheer determination, Collins hobbled across the line and was seen on camera grimacing. 

Andre De Grasse (European outdoor 100 m pro debut) went on to win the race in 10.07 seconds.

Collins took to Twitter and tweeted to fans, “sorry for the disappointment”, a gesture that was well received by his supporters.
