Josanne Lucas (born 14 May 1984) is a track and field athlete from Trinidad and Tobago who specialises in the 400 metres hurdles.[1][2][3]

Born in Carnbee, about 5 kilometres southwest of Scarborough, Tobago, Lucas' first success was a win at the national championships in the 400 metres in 2005, but she focused on hurdling instead. She competed at the 2005 World Championships in Athletics in the 400 m hurdles but failed to progress beyond the heats. Lucas represented Trinidad and Tobago at the 2008 Summer Olympics but again did not pass the heats.[4]

She set a new national record of 55.24 seconds in Belém at the Grande Prêmio Brasil Caixa meet in May 2009.[5]

She won the bronze in the 400m hurdles at the World Championships for Athletics in Berlin, Germany in 2009.[6]
