Olympic Games sprint double champion Elaine Thompson-Herah has started her pre-season training at a new base, the Mico University College in Kingston.

Thompson-Herah, who won the Tokyo 2020 100m and 200m titles, shared a photograph of herself on the Mico University College field.

Jamaica’s 1984 world 400m champion Bertland Cameron conditions his Cameron Blazers Club athletes from Mico University College; he also coaches Mico’s athletics team.

Trackalerts.com was reliably informed that Thompson-Herah will be guided by Cameron along with her husband, Derron Herah.

In her social media post, Thompson-Herah shared only: “Day 1 under the watchful eyes … I’m Immortal.”

The first woman to win back-to-back Olympic Games 100m/220m titles, Thompson-Herah decided to part ways with her longtime club, Jamaica’s MVP, where coach Stephen Francis has guided her to all her successes to date, including that of being the fastest woman alive, with 10.54 (100m) and 21.53 (200m).

He has also provided coverage for seven (7) World Athletics Championships held between 2007 and 2022, alongside various other international sporting events. Noteworthy mentions comprise his coverage of the 2007 World Cup of cricket and his cherished experience reporting on the 2004 clash between his favorite football team, Argentina, and the USA.


  1. What about this rumour that Nike asked Francis to coach a top athlete from USA. Hypothetically, let’s say the rumour is true, & that Sha’Carri Richards is that athlete. What would you do were you in Thompson’s shoes? Would you want to be a part of a system like that? Can you imagine being in that scenario, then get yourself beaten by Richards? Then to add insult to injury, Richards start to hype on you. But this is speculation at best, & worth giving some thought to.

  2. Biggest liar I said when you were denying it that time would tell and it certainly did. When you do such things you’re only hurting yourself.

  3. All the best Humble Queen Elaine. I support you all the way. Don’t let Haters get the best of you. Stay focused and do your thing .💯 💪

    • Ann Marie Hinds-Peart She has her reasons. I would speculate that her contractual arrangements at that time would prohibit her from speaking definitively on that issue. Just saying.

      • IF THAT WAS THE CASE… TELL THE JOURNALIST YOU ARE not able to comment on it at that time… Don’t tell a blatant lie that the media was just making up things and you have no plans of leaving the club when you know that’s not true. plus she did it with a straight face…. how do you believe anything that she says after that?

  4. Don’t watch the heaters live your life to the fullest u have a strong husband by your side trust in lord on live

  5. I really do hope her husband and Bertland Cameron do not go tinkering with her training program. Elaine is already a well-oiled machine, thanks to her old coach Stephen Francis. Their focus should be keeping her fit, healthy, and motivated. All Elaine will need in 2022 to break Flo-Jo’s record is the right running conditions once they do the basics for her.
