World Championships 100m hurdles finalists Megan Tapper has parted ways with MVP Track Club.

Tapper, who failed to finish in the women’s 100m final, is now taking is instructions from Austrian Phillip Unfried. Tapper’s husband Mathue is overseeing her workouts.

“I appreciate MVP for all they’ve done, and any success garnered for me,” the Jamaica Gleaner quoted Tapper saying.

“I believe it would be a win for everybody. I just wanted to spread my wings to fly to see what opportunities I have waiting on me,” she added.

Tapper, who won bronze at the 2019 Pan-Am Games, said she is taking a lot from this past season.

“This year was a real big eye-opener for me, and I’m definitely going to use it as a catapult for 2020,” she explained.

Tapper, along with Danielle Williams, Doha 2019 bronze medallist, Janeek Brown and Yanique Thompson were Jamaica’s 100m hurdlers at the World Athletics Championships in Qatar.
