Luguelin Santos was one of several Dominicans who managed to excel in the Ponce Grand Prix IAAF World Challenge 2014 on Paquito Montaner Stadium in Puerto Rico.
Santos participated in the 400 freestyle and finished second with a time of 44.53, being surpassed by American LaShawn Merritt, who clocked 44.14. Juander Santos and Gustavo Cuesta were also in that mode, crossing the line in 46.51 (8th place and new personal best) and 47.01 (10th) respectively.
To Luguelin this was his best time of the year for the fourth time to time so soon achieved below 45 seconds.
"Although I got a good brand I do not feel as I expected better, but I'm a little tired from the trip I took from Qatar. I arrived on Monday and I could not recover, "Luguelin told AFP.
