JAMAICAN Sherone Simpson is now training in Florida, USA. The 2008 Olympic Games 100m silver medallist is now training with Loren Seagrave in Tampa, Florida.
The three-time Olympian, who won individual silver medal at the 2008 Summer Games, left MVP for the Florida-based IMG Academy. She also won gold with Jamaica's 4x100m team in London 2012. At the World Championships level, she helped Jamaica to silver medals in 2011 and 2005.
Paul Doyle, Simpson's manager, confirmed the change in camp.
"Yes, she is now training with Loren Seagrave at the IMG Academy in Florida," said Doyle, who has managed Simpson during her entire professional career.
Simpson, along with former training partner Asafa Powell tested positive at the Jamaica Trials in June, which led to a fallout with former coach Stephen Francis.
Both Simpson and Powell started their professional career with Francis at MVP, but the coach in the last three months was quoted as saying he would not take back the athletes unless they parted company with manager Doyle.
Asked the reason why Simpson left MVP, Doyle said: "Just a change she was looking to make."
Powell, according to Doyle, is still in Jamaica without a training group.
Simpson and Powell will face Jamaica Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel in January.
