In Canadian men’s speed skating news, Olympian Denny Morrison is among total of seven skaters who met the time criteria of 1:09.32 for the 1000m race needed as Canada will have a maximum of four spots available in this event at the Fall World Cups.

De Haître, from Cumberland, ON, won the race in 1:07.83, ahead of Alexandre St-Jean (1:08.50), Peace Region’s Morrison (1:08.59), David LaRue (1:08.79, a new personal best) from Saint-Lambert, QC, Alex Boisvert-Lacroix (1:09.07), Laurent Dubreuil (1:09.11) and Richard Maclennan (1:09.22) from Sault Ste. Marie, ON.

Morrison talked the importance of family and maturity in his current skate game.

“I don’t have to make any huge changes anymore. I have the trust and confidence in myself to just build off this and let it happen a little more.”

“My family is my number one teammate and they know better than everyone what I’ve been through on the ice and off, and not just in speed skating but pertaining to life as well,” added Morrison. “It’s emotional, a very positive emotion.”
