After her recent split from coach Shanikie Osbourne, five-time Olympic Champion Elaine Thompson-Herah will now be under the guidance of new coach, Reynaldo Walcott, of Elite Performance Track Club.

The announcement was made on Monday, November 20, by Thompson Herah’s management team, Andi Sport Management, in a release.

She is set to join Jamaican sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, sprint hurdlers Meghan Tapper and Rushell Clayton, among others.

Thompson Herah reportedly separated from Osbourne due to a breakdown in negotiations on a compensation package for coaching services.

Thompson Herah’s management team says the athlete remains dedicated as ever to her craft, demonstrating an unequivocal focus on the path ahead.

It further noted that her commitment to excellence is unwavering and that she remains resolute in her pursuit of defending the double Olympic titles that she has triumphantly earned.
