The country's top female 400 hurdler over the pass five seasons, Kaliese Spencer has broken her silence on the surprising split from her training base for the last decade, MVP Track Club.

Speaking in an interview on Tuesday to local media house RJR, Spencer pointed out that she felt as if she had outgrown that environment and the time for change had come.
