Five-time Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah has split with her coach eight months before she will attempt to defend her sprint titles at Paris 2024.

According to her management team, the 31-year-old parted with Shanikie Osbourne because of the “extremely excessive” terms sought by the coach.

The Jamaican won 100m, 200m and 4x100m gold at Tokyo 2020 after winning 100m and 200m gold at Rio 2016.

She is the second-fastest woman in history over 100m.

“Collectively, we had no choice but to seek the services of another coach,” Thompson-Herah’s management team said in a statement.
