    Nothing on her Twitter about races or training!
    She normally runs INdoors!
    I follow her on Instagram and she is always posting pictures and videos of "training" on the track and in the weight room. I use quotations because it seems she is more just keeping in shape than training for competition. Alot with he child on the track and also she is doing coaching on the side apparently.

    Sad to see Raul Spank finally calling it a day, 7 years after setting his lifetime best of 2.33 at barely 21, then never jumping over 2.30 again. Must have been a frustrating career ...

    Normally? In the last nine years, she's appeared in 2010, '13 and '15. Never farther than 600m since 2010.

    Bittersweet announcement. Give her credit for fighting back after injury and disappointment; she wrung what she could out of her talent.

    Nice career marred by tragic falls in major finals. Could have been so much better with better luck.

    Boyd's announcement here, with decent summary of her career - 3xOG (2 finals), 3xWC (1 final), 2xComm Game Gold, 4 x NR, 4x national titles). Certainly leaves at a high point with her Olympic 4th in near PR in Rio.

    http://athletics.com.au/News/alana-boyd-retires

    Famously, also the daughter of two Aussie T&F Olympians. Mum Denise was a 200m finalist in 1976 & 1980, and won 8 Comm Games medals (incl. 2 gold), won 11 national titles, and was TFN-ranked 4 years. She set a 200m NR in 1980 (22.35) which still sits #3 on the Aussie all time list. Dad Ray went to 1972 and 1976 OG in PV, won 1982 Comm Games, and won 12 national titles.

    Oh and her sister Jacinta was a 6.64m LJer, and her brother, a 5.35 Pver (beating his dad's PR by 5 cms).

    Racers Grand Prix to be Bolt's last race in Jamaica:

    Andre Lowe, Special Projects Editor - Sports

    After confirming that next year’s World Championships will be his last major competitive appearance, sprint king Usain Bolt this morning told viewers of Television Jamaica’s ‘Smile Jamaica’ morning magazine programme, that next year’s Racers Grand Prix will in fact be his last race in front of local fans.

    Bolt, who told presenters Neville Bell and Sakina Deer that he and his team are yet to decide on which event he will be running then, does not have to compete at next year’s National Senior Championships having already secured his place on Jamaica’s team to the World Championships in the 100m and 200m, by virtue of his gold medals in those events at the last championships in Beijing a year ago.

    “Yes I am definitely going to retire after the World championships in London, that will be my last one,” said Bolt.

    “The Racers Grand Prix will be my last race in Jamaica people, it will be the last time I run in Jamaica,” Bolt declared.

    The Racers Track Club, of which Bolt is a member, this year staged its first international track meet, the Racers Grand Prix on June 11 to overwhelming acclaim, with Bolt winning the men’s 100m in 9.88 seconds.

    Bolt and other members of Jamaica’s team to this year’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro will be honoured this weekend by the government of Jamaica.

    He will also take part in the second staging of the Jamaica National Foundation Heroes in Action 8k run/walk and 4k fun run in his home town, Falmouth on Sunday. The event is being endorsed by his Usain Bolt Foundation and will support several charities in the Parish of Trelawny including the Granville Place of Safety for Girls.
