BLOOMINGTON (USA): Canadian high jumper Derek Drouin sustained a foot injury while competing in the high jump last weekend at the Big Ten/SEC Challenge. The injury will require surgery and will cause Drouin to sit out the 2011 outdoor season. While recovery and rehab will take time, Indiana’s medical staff expects Drouin to make a complete recovery. Drouin will seek a medical hardship redshirt for this outdoor season and return to competition once his rehab is complete. He cleared in March 233 to win the NCAA Indoor title and equalled national indoor record.
