Drouin plans for Tokyo 2021
BLOOMINGTON (USA): The 2016 Olympic winner in high jump Canadian Derek Drouin plans to compete in Tokyo 2021 at the Olympic Games. “Regardless of your profession or place in life, we all have goals and we all have milestones we would like to reach. It would be foolish and irrational to try to march on through this pandemic as if nothing had happened at all. Adjustments to everybody’s daily life need to be made and every single person has been affected in some way or another by COVID-19. For me, my goal is to compete at the Tokyo Olympics — that hasn’t changed but my path to get there certainly has. My GPS says my Estimated Time of Arrival is almost a full 365 days later than originally planned. That’s a destination that difficult to see through this fog and that’s okay, because right now I’m focused on winning today.” From weareunsinkable.com.
