CALGARY, A.B. – Fort St. John’s Denny Morrison and Dawson Creek’s Braden Clouthier both had podium finishes at Speed Skating Canada’s Canada Cup #2 competition yesterday.

The Canada Cup #2 is taking place this week in Calgary, and allows skaters to earn points toward season-ending rankings, which are crucially important with the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea taking place in just over 13 months.

Quebec City’s Jérôme Detuncq won the men’s 500 m race yesterday in 36.01 seconds. Denny Morrison cross the line just over half a second behind Detuncq to place second with a time of 36.52.
