The fastest woman alive, Elaine Thompson-Herah, says she has outgrown the environment at MVP track club.

Thompson-Herah is making her first public comments since decamping from MVP track club last month.

Speaking on Miss Kitty Live on Nationwide 90fm this afternoon, Thompson-Herah says she no longer believed staying with the club was beneficial to her development as an athlete.

Thompson-Herah, the multiple Olympic champion, caused controversy recently when she told a US based programme that claims that she’s leaving the Bruce James-led MVP Track club were media rumours.

However, she recently confirmed the Nationwide Sports report that she had indeed departed from MVP in a brief statement.

She’s since started training on her own at the Mico University in Kingston under the watchful eye of her husband, Derron and head of the Cameron Blazers group, Bertland Cameron.

Despite leaving the only club she’s know since 2014, Thompson-Herah says she’s appreciative of her time there.

While at MVP, Thompson-Herah won five gold medals and two silver medals at the Olympic Games. She also won a gold and a silver medal at the World Championships.

The U-Tech based club also guided her to a national record of 10.54 seconds – which also makes her the second fastest woman in history over 100-metres.

Thompson-Herah also holds the national record in the women’s 200-metres – 21.53 seconds set at the Tokyo Olympics.

Meanwhile, Thompson-Herah told Ms. Kitty that she is still with long time sponsor, Nike.
