By Jon Zacks

Denny Morrison added a silver in the men’s team pursuit on Sunday, to give him two second-place finishes at the final World Cup competition of the season.

After posting his best 1,500 metre time of the season on Friday to pick up the silver medal, Morrison joined his Olympic teammates Lucas Makowsky and Mattieu Giroux as the trio finished about a second and a half behind the gold medal-winning Norwegians.
