Jehue Gordon is a Trinidadian track and field athlete who specializes in the 400 meters hurdles. He turned professional on June 24, 2010,  and signed a deal with Adidas in August 2010.

He began his international athletics career along with his brother at the 2008 World Junior Championships in Athletics, where he finished fifth in the semi-finals at the age of 16. He was the bronze medallist in the 400 m hurdles at the 2008 CARIFTA Games and went on to win the gold medal the following year, recording a championship record of 50.01 seconds. His success continued in the form of a bronze medal at the 2009 Central American and Caribbean Championships in Athletics, where he ran a time of 49.45 seconds, and silver at the 2009 Pan American Junior Athletics Championships.

He qualified for the 2009 World Championships in Athletics and surprised by setting a world-age best and senior national record of 48.66 seconds in the heats. He progressed through the rounds and reached the final, finishing in fourth with a 48.26-second national record. Statisticians A. Lennart Julin and Mirko Jalava picked out Gordon's performances as sign of promise for future success. At the start of the 2010 season, he took a 400 m and 110 metres hurdles double at the trials for the CARIFTA Games.  He went on to improve the championship records in both the 110 and 400 m hurdles at the 2010 CARIFTA Games, earning himself that year's Austin Sealy Trophy.
