    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.

    I agree with the points you make here. It will be interesting to see Wally get back to a “elite” group. With Wally and Usain being good friends, why didnt he hook up with that side? And to be honest, I am surprised that we havent seen any US sprinters move down that way to train until now (if it does happen).

    It was pretty evident that his split with Brauman did not benefit him in his performances on the track. I think this is a great move for him as he is moving into the peak years of his career.

    Veronica Campbell-Brown is with MVP right? Anyway good for Spearmon I think it’s a smart move, if it happens.

    If I’m not mistaking Campbell-Brown is still with Brauman. I think she moved to Florida to train with him and Tyson Gay not MVP in Jamaica. I think it would be a great move for Wallace, but would that also mean his soon to be wife 400m runner Monica Hargrove will be making the move with him if he goes?

    Spearmon’s a smart man if he does go through with it; Caribbean food alone will give him an immediate performance boost. My wife’s a Trini and every time she cooks rotis my 60 time goes down by .10s. 🙂
