Mike Mason returned to the Olympic Games in London to compete in the high jump event for the second consecutive time and finished in eighth place to improve on his finish in Beijing.
At 2012 nationals, Mason finished in second place to Olympic bronze medallist Derek Drouin. Mason now holds one gold (2008), two silver (2010, 2012) and one bronze medal (2009) at the Canadian Championships.
At the 2010 Commonwealth Games, Mason finished in seventh place. He was the 2004 World Junior champion, jumping 2.21m in Grosseto, Italy, earning Canada’s first gold medal in high jump since two-time Olympian Mark Boswell of Brampton, Ontario won the 1996 World Junior Championships.
