Derek Drouin won bronze in the high jump event at the London 2012 Games after clearing the 2.29m mark to finish in a three-way tie for third. Competing in his first Olympic Games, the native of Corunna, Ontario captured Canada’s first high jumping medal since Greg Joy won silver at the 1976 Games in Montreal.

In March 2013 Drouin won the NCAA Indoor high jump title with a leap of 2.35m, breaking a national record that had existed since 1999. On June 1, 2013 Drouin broke the Canadian outdoor record, a mark untouched in 11 years, with a jump of 2.36m to capture bronze at the Prefontaine Classic, the fourth stop of the IAAF Diamond League. Less than a week later, in his final meet for the Indiana Hoosiers, he won the NCAA Outdoor high jump title by clearing 2.34m. In doing so, he became the first ever five-time NCAA high jump champion.
