Commonwealth bronze for high jumper Mason


Mike Mason of Abbotsford’s Valley Royals track and field club leaped to a bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland on Wednesday.



The 27-year-old Nanoose Bay native cleared 2.25 metres in the high jump, good for third place behind fellow Canadian Derek Drouin (2.31m) and Kyriakos Ioannou of Cyprus (2.28m).

Mason is a two-time Olympian who represented Canada at the Summer Games in Beijing (2008) and London (2012). He was the eighth-place finisher in the high jump at the London Games.
