PONCE, Puerto Rico--Washington State University alum Jeshua Anderson (left/photo by Paul Merca) is entered in Saturday's Ponce Grand Prix de Atletismo meet in the Puerto Rican city, where he'll meet a strong field in the 400 hurdles.
Anderson, who won both the USA and NCAA titles in the 400 hurdles in 2011, faces a field that includes national hero Javier Culson, the 2012 Olympic bronze medalist; 2012 Olympic silver medalist Michael Tinsley, who was last year's Olympic Trials winner; and long time collegiate rival Johnny Dutch.
Tinsley and Dutch have the two fastest times in the world so far this season at 48.55 and 48.73, set at the Drake Relays.
Anderson's best this season is 49.14, set in winning the Mt. SAC Relays last month.
