Two members of Canada's track and field team will have a shot at the podium on Tuesday.
Michael Mason of Nanoose Bay, B.C. and Derek Drouin of Corunna, Ont., were among 14 qualifiers for Tuesday’s final in men’s high jump.
Drouin finished second in group A qualifying with a mark of 2.29-metres.
“It was stressful,” Drouin said. “I’m not one to have a lot of misses like that. I usually like to clear on my first try. I wasn’t that nervous coming in here, I’m not sure what was going on. I’m relieved to get through and excited for the final.”
Mason tied for sixth place in group B qualifying with a performance of 2.26-metres.
"It was a bit of a tough day technically," Mason said. It took me a while to get going and find my mark. Getting my third attempt at 2.26m secured my spot in the final. I'm relieved and looking forward it."
