Denny Morrison 2nd in 1k


Denny Morrison has earned his second consecutive second-place finish at the Canadian Single-Distance Speed-skating championships.

Morrison finished Tuesday’s 1,000 metres in a time of 1:07.94, to finish 37 100ths of a second behind Jeremy Wotherspoon.  Morrison had already prequalified for the Olympics in the event, while Wotherspoon is trying to get back into Olympic contention, after missing most of the 2008/09 season with a broken arm.

Kyle Parrott finished third in the 1,000, while Fort St. John’s Jay Morrison also raced, finishing in 28th.
