Derek Drouin owned the Canadian records for the high jump while competing for the University of Indiana. Drouin was a five time NCAA champion in the high jump. In 2012, Drouin recovered from a serious foot injury to win a bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics. This was Canada's first medal in high jump since the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal when Greg Joy medalled for Canada. The following year in Moscow, he won another bronze at the IAAF World Championships. With that jump of 2.38m he set a national record in the high jump for Canada. He would go on to better that height to 2.40 metres (7 ft 10 in) during the 2014 season, becoming just the tenth man in the world to ever clear that height in outdoor competition. He also claimed Commonwealth Games gold in 2014.

2015 was a special year for Drouin. In June, Drouin won gold while teammate Mike Mason won silver at the Pan American Games in Toronto. In August, Drouin won a jump off between three competitors to claim his first IAAF World Championship title.
