The 40-year-old sprint super star, Kim Collins, from Saint Kitts and Nevis will open his 2017 season on Saturday, January 28 at Jablonec Indoor Gala in Czech Republic.

The 2003 Word 100m champion Collins will race one of his favorite races - the 60m dash. 

Collins has turned over old beliefs that says that athlete can't be at his top speed passing age of 30. 

Just last year at age of 40 Collins set his 100m personal best of 9.93 seconds setting a new world masters record.

During 2015 indoor season he went undefeated while he set his 60m personal best and world masters record of 6.47 at indoor meet in Lodz, Poland. 

This Saturday Collins will have a chance to brake his own world masters indoor record of 6.47 seconds as he lines up against top Czech sprinters.

On April 5th Kim Collins will celebrate his 41st birthday.
