Fastest Woman Alive, Elaine Thompson-Herah Secures The Bag With Puma As She Moves From Nike


Five-time Olympic champion and fastest woman alive Elaine Thompson-Herah has signed a sponsorship deal with global sports brand Puma. Thompson-Herah, the back-to-back Olympic 100m and 200m champion, will boost the company’s impressive roster of track and field athletes ahead of the 2022 World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon.

“Puma just felt like the right fit,” says Thompson-Herah. “The company has been working with the world’s fastest athletes for decades and I can’t wait to be part of such an elite group.”

Thompson-Herah had a time of 10.54 seconds at the 2021 Prefontaine Classic, making her the second-fastest woman in history. The 30-year-old Jamaican who holds the 100- and 200-meter world records now has her sights set on smashing Florence Griffith-1988 Joyner’s 100-meter world record of 10.49 seconds. “Now is the time to break it,” says the double Olympic champion. “I think there’s still a lot I can unleash.”

PUMA’s CEO Bjørn Gulden stated: “We are thrilled that Elaine has chosen to join the PUMA family.”  “With her speed, she embodies everything we stand for as a brand. Elaine ran the second-fastest time in women’s history last year and is only 0.05 seconds off a world record. She really targets the 100-meter world record and we want to help her achieve that goal with our most innovative performance products.”

Track and field has a long relationship with Puma, who has supported the Jamaican Athletics Team since 2002. Thompson-Herah has now joined Usain Bolt, a Jamaican who holds the 100- and 200-meter men’s world records and has won eight Olympic gold medals.

Thompson-Herah began her 2022 World Championship campaign on Sunday, July 17 won the second semi-final heat with a time of 10.82 seconds.
