Denny Morrison finalist for BC Athlete of the Year

Fort St. John’s Denny Morrison has been named a finalist for Senior Male Athlete of the Year at the 47th Annual Athlete of the Year Awards to be held March 7, 2013 at the River Rock Casino in Richmond.

The BC Sport Community announced the finalists for its 47th Annual Athlete of the Year Awards on Thursday, Jan. 10 and a local athlete was listed among them.

Fort St. John speed skater Denny Morrison was named a finalist for Senior Male Athlete of the Year, up against some other big names like cyclist Ryder Hsejedal and Olympic swimmer Ryan Cochrane, both from Victoria.

Morrison, who had won a gold medal and silver in the 1,000-m races in this year’s ISU World Cup Series, broke his leg over the holidays and is currently in rehabilitation.

“A significant number of very strong nominations were received this year,” said Sport BC’s President and CEO, Rob Newman. “The Athlete of the Year Awards provides a great opportunity to recognize these talented and deserving athletes, coaches and officials.  This year’s nominees are certainly a testament to the strength and depth of sport in our province.”

The Athlete of the Year Awards is the longest standing sport recognition in Canada and was founded by Sport BC.

The awards ceremony will be held March 7 at the River Rock Show Theatre in Richmond.
