Five-time Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah will train under the same coach as Jamaican teammate Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce as she prepares to defend her sprint titles at Paris 2024.
The 31-year-old, winner of 100m, 200m and 4x100m gold in Tokyo 2020, will continue his Olympic preparation with Reynaldo Walcott – coach of 10-time world champion Fraser-Pryce since 2020.
Thompson-Herah is the second fastest woman in history over 100m and her golden treble in Tokyo comes after she won 100m and 200m gold at Rio 2016.
But while she dominated women’s sprinting at the last two Olympic Games, she failed to qualify for this year’s World Championships in Budapest after an injury-hampered season.
Five-time world 100m champion Fraser-Pryce won the Olympic 100m title in Beijing 2008 and London 2012.
She was part of her country’s successful 4x100m relay team in Tokyo – but had to settle for 100m silver behind Thompson-Herah.
“Out of adversity grow miracles,” Thompson-Herah posted on X.
The athletics management team said: “Thompson-Herah remains as dedicated as ever to his craft, showing a clear focus on the road ahead.
“His commitment to excellence is unwavering and he is determined in his quest to defend the double Olympic title that he won so triumphantly.”
