Derek DROUIN - Canada - 2015 World high jump champion & Olympic Gold in Rio 2016

Derek Drouin celebrates clearing the bar at 2.34m to win the 2015 World

Championship high jump final in Beijing, after a protracted finale with three jumpers

all in contention for the title in a jump-off.

Having all failed three time at 2.36 after jumping 2.33 first time Droiun,
China's Zhang Guowei and Bohdan Bondarenko (on his 30th birthday) had to try and

clear the lower height of 2.34 to take the title.

Derek did the others didn't.

Mutaz Essa Barshim had also cleared 2.33, but took two attempts, so was not involved:

because two silver medals were awarded there was no third place bronze.

winning the men's final with 2.34m from Mutaz Essa Barshim with Bohdan Bondarenko taking

the bronze medal. Derek cleared 2.38 metres at his first attempt (plus every other height !) and

then attempted 2.40m -  once.    

Bohdan Bondarenko tried 2.40m as his third try at 2.38 (if that makes sense) having by passed 2.36m.
