Morrison wins silver in Nagano


Denny Morrison won the silver medal in the 1,000-m race on Sunday at the ISU World Cup #4 in Nagano, Japan.

Speed skater Denny Morrison wrapped up the World Cup #4 in Nagano, Japan with a silver medal and sixth place finish in the 1,000-metre race.

On Saturday Morrison came sixth with a time of 1:10.19 in the 1,000 m but had a much better finish on Sunday at the Nagano Olympic Memorial Arena.

With a time of 1:09.64 Morrison won his second medal this season, taking silver after Dutch skater Hein Otterspeer finished first with 1:09.20.

“The race itself went pretty,” Morrison said on Sunday. “It was a lot better than [Saturday’s] – just a lot smoother and doing the things I want to do in the race.”

“There’s still a lot to improve on, but I was fortunate enough to win.”

Morrison’s silver was Canada’s 30th medal.

Former Fort St. John resident Kaylin Irvine also shone on Sunday in the women’s 1,000 m division B race, finishing first in a time of 1:18.55.

“The race wasn’t perfect, for sure,” Irvine said. “I felt scrappy. The technique didn’t come easy today, so I kept my aggression up and tried to keep my legs moving in the last lap.”

The Essent ISU World Cup #5 will take place in Harbin, China Dec. 15 and 16.
