Article source: Athletics


Canada's Derek Drouin delivered gold by winning men's high jump on Wednesday night in Rio.  

The 2-time World Champion, Drouin, produced one of his best performance in his career as he did not miss a single attempt on his way to win the men's high Olympic jump gold with a season's best mark of 2.38m. 

Qatar's Mutaz Barshim claimed silver with 2.36m, while Ukraine's Bohdan Bondarenko took silver with 2.33m.

Last time a Canadian won a gold medal in field event was back in 1932 at the Los Angeles Games when Duncan McNaughton took Olympic title in high jump.
