London:

Former 100-meter world champion Kim Collins has been disciplined by the St. Kitts and Nevis team and dropped from the event on Saturday at the London Olympics.

St. Kitts and Nevis team spokesman Lester Hanley tells The Associated Press that Collins won't run in his heat after breaking team discipline rules by leaving the athletes' village.

Hanley says "Kim has not been in camp the last couple of days."

Collins posted messages on his Twitter account Saturday, saying "My fans. I won't lie. Won't be running later tonight."

Collins wrote: "Even men in prison get their wives to visit."

The 2003 world champion is attending his fifth straight Summer Games.

Hanley says Collins is still entered in the 200 and the 4x100 relay.
