Beckwith, Drouin pull out narrow wins at London meet

Drouin, a junior, cleared 2.26 meters to win the high jump Saturday at the Aviva London Grand Prix Diamond League Meet in London.

Drouin, who will represent his native Canada in the Olympics later this month, edged out Robbie Grabarz of Great Britain, the No. 3 high jumper in the world,

Meanwhile, former Hoosier Molly Beckwith narrowly outran Janeth Jepkosgei, clipping the Kenyan by less then 1/100th of a second (2:00.68) to win the 800-meter.

Beckwith has now run the 800 in under 2:01 for the seventh straight race.
