Elaine Thompson-Herah has finally confirmed her departure from MVP Track Club and coach Stephen Francis.
On Monday (18 Oct), the day she was conferred with the Order of Distinction in Commander Class (CD) rank, Thompson-Herah confirmed her MVP departure.
“I want to assure everyone that I have begun my training independently and will continue to do so while I finalise all aspects of my team for the upcoming season,” Thompson Herah said.
“I want to thank everyone for their support and express appreciation to those who have reached out in concern,” added Thompson-Herah.
She continued: “I remain committed to representing my country and to lead with courage and grace as I am aware that I inspire young women across the world who have dreams and who dare to see those dreams come to pass.”
Francis guided Thompson-Herah to back-to-back sprints double titles in Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020. She also won silver in her breakthrough year of 2015 at the Beijing World Championships.
