Even though the Olympics in Vancouver were a disappointment for Denny Morrison in terms of his individual performances in the 1000m and 1500m and the aftermath in the media shortly thereafter, he showed some remarkable resilience when he helped Team Canada win Olympic Gold in the Team Pursuit just a few days later. But that was then, and this is now. With his 1:08.46 in the 1000m at the Fall World Cup Trials in Calgary last month, Morrison gave a good start to this post-Olympic season, and...Read Full Post »

RICHMOND, B.C. — Denny Morrison emerged from his latest poor performance at the Olympic and began to question everything.
The 24-year-old long-track speedskater from Fort St. John, B.C. - a former world champion in the distance and one of Canada's top medal hopefuls at the Richmond Oval - finished a disappointing ninth in the men's 1,500 metres at the Vancouver Games on Saturday.
