Luis Alonso Morán Servellón (born August 4, 1971 in San Pedro Sula) is a Honduran judoka, who competed in the men's heavyweight category.[1] He picked up a silver medal in the over-100 kg division at the 2006 Central American and Caribbean Games in Cartagena, Colombia, and also represented his nation Honduras at the 2004 Summer Olympics.[2]

Moran qualified as a lone judoka for the Honduran squad in the men's heavyweight class (+100 kg) at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, by granting a tripartite invitation from the International Judo Federation.[3] He lost his opening match to Dutch judoka and eventual bronze medalist Dennis van der Geest, who successfully scored an ippon, and tightly wrapped him with a soto makikomi (outer wraparound) hold at one minute and fifty-three seconds.[4][5]
