Lalonde Gordon snared silver in the men's 400 metres event at the Mohammed VI d'Athletisme IAAF World Challenge meet, in Morocco, on Sunday.

The Trinidad and Tobago quarter-miler completed his lap of the track in 46.02 seconds to finish behind Grenada's reigning Olympic champion, Kirani James, the winner in 45.15. Bahamian Demetrius Pinder secured bronze in 46.16.

Gordon came off the final turn near the back of the eight-man field. The 2012 Olympic bronze medallist, however, had plenty gas left in his tank. He powered down the home straight, reeling in all but James to secure the runner-up spot in his second individual one-lap outing this season.

In his 2015 400m opener, in St Martin on May 9, Gordon emerged victorious in 45.50 seconds. He captured an impressive double at that meet, winning the 200m event in 20.53.

Gordon will be home for the June 26-28 NGC-Sagicor NAAA National Open Track and Field Championships, at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain. The 26-year-old quartermiler is expected to square off against Machel Cedenio, Deon Lendore, Jarrin Solomon, Renny Quow and Jereem Richards for the men's 400m title at Nationals. Quow is the reigning one-lap champion, while Gordon captured 200m gold last year.

Josanne Lucas was also on show at Sunday's IAAF World Challenge meet, in Morocco. The 2009 IAAF World Championship bronze medallist finished sixth in the women's 400m hurdles in 57.53 seconds.

South African Wenda Nel earned gold in 55.36, finishing ahead of Ukraine's Anna Titimets (55.86) and Morocco's Hayat Lambarki (55.94).
