Morrison named to Fall World Cup roster

Fort St. John’s own Denny Morrison will have a chance to get back on the World Cup podium after almost 18 months removed from competitive speed skating.

Morrison was one of the 20 skaters chosen on Monday to represent Canada at the first two ISU World Cup Long Track Speed Skating stages that will begin the 2016-2017 season on Nov. 11 in Harbin, China and Nov. 18-20 in Nagano, Japan.

Morrison raced qualifying times in both the 1,000 and 1,500 metres at the Fall World Cup Selections in Calgary last month. He is expected to compete in both events at the World Cups.
