Thompson-Herah splits from MVP, says she’s now ‘training independently’

Olympic Games sprint double champion Elaine Thompson-Herah has announced her split from the MVP Track Club, less than a month after rubbishing reports that she planned to sever ties with the club that has guided her career since 2014.

In a statement on Monday, the Jamaican sprint icon said she is “training independently and will continue to do so while I finalize all aspects of my team for the upcoming season.”

Just weeks after she ended her 2021 season, winning three gold medals at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, and winning her third Diamond League 100m title, news broke last month that Thompson-Herah had written to MVP advising them of her intention to cut ties.
