Shocking exit for St Kitts 100m sprinter Kim Collins


On the eve of the 100m heats, the former world champion Kim Collins was bizarrely dropped from his Country’s team for spending the night with his, wait for it… wife.  

Collins is believed to have fallen out with the national Olympics committee from St Kitts & Nevis for an unauthorised trip away from the Olympic site.

A spokesman for the St. Kitts and Nevis team said that Collins would not run in his heat after breaking team discipline rules by leaving the athletes village.

An outraged Kim Collins took to twitter in an outburst that told his fans, “I won’t lie. I won’t be running later tonight @LON2012.” He went on to tweet that “Even men in prison get their wives to visit.”
