 If you haven't heard of Canadian high jumper Mark Boswell here's a recap of his 1999-2000 performances: silver medallist at the 1999 world championships; Pan Am Games champion; undefeated in 14 straight collegiate meets for the University of Texas Longhorns through March including three NCAA titles.

 He opened the 2000 season at the Air Force Invitational leaping 2.35 metres which was a school, conference and Canadian record. It is also the fifth best jump this season heading into Sydney. He then won the Big 12 title at 2.33 breaking the 2.27 meet mark he set last year.

 Boswell has enjoyed past success in Sydney. He won the gold medal there at the 1996 world junior championships despite being ranked 12th. It was the first time a Canadian landed a world junior crown. That year MacLeans included him in their "100 Canadians to Watch" list.
