Spearmon to Join MVP?

0

After losing Tyson Gay as a training partner and a disappointing move away from long-time coach Lance Brauman to be coached by his dad, it looks like Wallace Spearmon might be joining Asafa Powell with the MVP track club. While it seems to be waaay early to assume this will happen…I think it would be good for all involved. It would give Asafa a training partner who could push him on speed endurance work and would return Spearmon to a training group where he’s not the fastest man on the track. Also, both Powell and Spearmon now have something to prove after Powell’s Olympic meltdown and Spearmon’s DQ. It’s kind of interesting to think about and as far as I’m aware it would be the first time a major American track star left the U.S. to train with a foreign group. Will the new dominance of Jamaica’s sprinters shift the world sprint economy such that the U.S. becomes EXPORTERS rather than just importers? I’m sure this would be a much easier decision for Wallace if MVP were to move their Jamaican training base (to perhaps the U.S.).
