Andisportsmanagement has welcomed Jamaican Olympic triple gold medalist Elaine Thompson-Herah.

The Jamaica Observer reported on Monday that the agency is now representing Thompson-Herah after she recently “parted ways” with coach Stephen Francis and the MVP Track Club. 

“Welcome the five-time Olympic champion and the fastest woman alive Elaine Thompson-Herah to our team,” said Andisportsmanagement in a post on Instagram. “It is our pleasure to represent @fastelaine on her continuously evolving journey.” 

Andisportsmanagement, whose principal is Jamaican Olympian Marvin Anderson, also represents Jaheel Hyde, Rushell Clayton, Natasha Morrison, Andre Ewers and Christine Day, among others, the Observer said. 

“It is the latest personnel change to the support staff of Thompson-Herah, who was previously represented by agent Adrian Laidlaw,” the publication said, adding that following her historic exploits at the Tokyo Olympics and on the Diamond League circuit last season, Thompson-Herah “parted ways with coach Stephen Francis and the MVP Track Club, which has guided her career since 2014.” 

Subsequently, Thompson-Herah attributed the split to outgrowth. 

“I’ve outgrown the environment (at MVP) pretty much enuh,” she told Miss Kitty Live on Nationwide Radio. 

“What I want for myself, and to better myself, that was not provided,” she added. “So, I have to find ways to get it.”
