Athletic Stadium Named After Kim Collins

Sport and government officials were among those in attendance on Sunday afternoon for a ceremony to rename the national track stadium at Bird Rock in honour of sprint icon, Kim Collins.

The ceremony formed part of the 2015 CARIFTA Games taking place this weekend.

Speaking with the media earlier in the day, Collins said he was thrilled to be honoured in that way on his birthday.

“Thanks to everyone for such an amazing birthday present. The family and I are happy to be back home and we’re gonna be here and we’re gonna have a great time and we wish everyone lots of success at the CARIFTA Games and thanks to everyone for putting this fabulous event together,” he said.

The arena, formerly called the Silver Jubilee Stadium will now be called the Kim Collins Athletic Stadium.
