Press Release by Andi Sports Management

Thompson-Herah's coaching debacle became a public concern when it was confirmed that the reigning Olympic champion had parted ways with coach Shanikie Osbourne, despite her fantastic end to the 2023 season.

Her management later released a statement citing that a breakdown in negotiations on a compensation package was responsible for both women parting ways. Hence, they were searching for a new coach.

With the appointment of coach Walcott, the fastest woman alive will start training with an elite group that includes five-time World 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.
