Veteran sprinter Kim Collins has not been included in St Kitts and Nevis team for the upcoming World Indoor Championships in Poland.



The 38-year-old sprinter was not considered although he is the world’s fourth fastest man over 60 metres this year.



Collins has been at odds with track and field officials in St Kitts after he was sent home from the 2012 London Olympics for allegedly spending the night with his wife without authorisation.



However, media reports and athletic officials say consideration was being given to Collins’ renewed interest in representing his country again at World Games.



The St Kitts and Nevis Amateur Athletic Association released a two-man squad for the March 7-9 game in the Polish city of Sopot.



The two athletes selected are sprinters Jason Rogers and Brijesh Lawrence

However, media reports and athletic officials say consideration was being given to Collins’ renewed interest in representing his country again at World Games.
