Thompson-Herah denies split with MVP


(Jamaica Observer) Olympic Games sprint double champion Elaine Thompson-Herah has rubbished reports that she has plans to sever ties with the MVP Track Club and coach Stephen Francis who has guided her career since 2014.

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 yesterday that Thompson-Herah had written to MVP TC advising them of her intention to cut ties.

There was also speculation that she was to be coached by her husband Derron, himself a former athlete, but Thompson-Herah said it was “rumours” and blamed the media for creating mischief.
