Congratulations are going out to Corunna native Derek Drouin, who captured a bronze medal in the men's high jump event on Tuesday at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Drouin shares the bronze with two other competitors–Mutaz Essa Barshim, from Qatar, and Great Britain’s Robert Grabarz–all of whom cleared 2.29 metres.
Corunna and area citizens are already planning a homecoming for Drouin, who returns to university in Indiana this fall.
Everything from a parade to a banner over the street where he lives to a bronze mailbox have been put out there.
Bob Bossence began the Internet discussion with the idea of a banner over Lyndock and Hill Street, the area where Drouin calls home.
In the meantime, Drouin has sparked a new sense of Canadian pride.
