My mother always taught me with the bad comes the good. In light if the Trey Lyles news, we get some awesome news from the London Olympics. IU senior to be and Canadian high jumper Derek Drouin tied for the bronze medal this afternoon in the high jump. One of only two collegiate jumpers in the event, Drouin succeeded in beating out a field of 36 for bronze. Drouin becomes the second medalist in the London games thus far. Following Margaux Farrell's bronze medal in the 4x200m relay for the French swim team. Indiana now has 87 all-time medals to its name.
