Canada's Derek Drouin won a surprise bronze medal in high jump at the Olympics in London Tuesday.
Drouin, a 22-year-old from Sarnia, Ont., jumped a height of 2.29 metres, which left him in third place behind gold medallist Ivan Ukhov of Russia and silver medallist Erik Kynard of the United States.
Drouin shared the bronze medal with two other athletes, including Robert Grabarz of Great Britain and Mutz Essa Barshim of Qatar, who jumped the same height.
Michael Mason of New Westminster, B.C., placed eighth in the high jump final.
