Canadian Denny Morrison has won a bronze medal at the world single distances speedskating championships, finishing third behind a pair of Americans in the men’s 1,500 metres.

Shani Davis of the U.S., captured gold in one minute 46.19 seconds while Trevor Marsicano took silver in 1:46.30. Morrison, a native of Fort St. John, B.C., finished in 1:47.05 at the Richmond Olympic Oval, the speedskating venue for next year’s Vancouver Winter Games.

Morrison came in as the defending world champion but Davis was the favourite after breaking the Canadian’s world record at a World Cup in Salt Lake City last week.

Davis’s time of 1:41.80 shaved about a third of a second from Morrison’s previous record of 1:42.01 seconds last spring in Calgary. Morrison won a gold and a bronze in the 1,500 on the World Cup circuit this season.
