Elaine Thompson's fans have showered her with love after she shared a captivating Christmas message with them.

The fastest woman alive, Elaine Thompson-Herah, has warmed the hearts of her fans with a sweet message as they celebrate Christmas festivities.

Thompson, the multiple Olympic champion, after a tough season, opted to end her campaign with tons of appreciation for her fans’ unwavering support. She posted a video on her X (Twitter), captioning it “Season Greetings”.

In the video, Thompson said: “I wish you guys a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year when it comes. I appreciate you all.

"Thanks for the love and support as we approach 2024. Let’s continue to push ourselves. Keep on smiling, praying, and just do you.”

Her fans also showed love to her and one X user, Ian Thompson, commented on the video saying: “Happy holidays to you too be merry and enjoy the season...then comes the thrills! For the Olympic season.”

Another user, Michael Walker, commented on the video saying: “My dream for you in 2024 is to defend the 100/200 at the Olympics. For you to break Flo Jo's record from 1988.”

Norma Lawrence commented on her video saying: “Seasons greetings to you fast Elaine, and the very best for the new year, and your upcoming track season.”

Meanwhile, Thompson has had quite a mixed 2023 season, starting on a low note but she was able to achieve some milestones as the season ended.

The Jamaican sprint star missed out on the chance to compete in an individual race at the World Championships in Budapest due to her niggly injury that proved to be her worst nightmare.

After the World Championships setback, however, she bounced back swiftly, clocking her first sub-11 performance to win the 100m race at the Gala dei Castelli before also reigning supreme at the Diamond League Meeting in Brussels.

She ended her season on a high note, finishing third at the Prefontaine Classic, the Diamond League Meeting final.

The 31-year-old also made coaching changes ahead of the Olympic Games. She appointed Reynaldo Walcott as her new coach following her split from Shanikie Osbourne. Walcott also works with multiple world and Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.
