MONCTON – Trinidadian Jehue Gordon maintained his outstanding form at the World Junior Championships when he stormed to victory in the men’s 400-metres hurdles on Friday night. Entering the final with the fastest overall time, Gordon dismissed his opposition to claim gold in a time of 49.30 seconds at the Stade 2010 Moncton Stadium.He hit the line ahead of the fast-finishing Japanese Takatoshi Abe (49.46) while the US Virgin Islands’ Leslie Murray was third in a time of 50.22 seconds. Gordon, who has already run a season-best 48.47, faded in the latter stages and was forced to stave off a strong challenge from Abe before claiming a well-earned triumph.
