SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Denny Morrison of Fort St. John, B.C., won his third medal this season taking the silver in the 1,000 metres in one minute and 7.39 seconds at Essent ISU World Cup (sprint) in Salt Lake City. The 500-metre and 1,000-metre races will be repeated on Sunday.

“Good races, so I was happy with them,” said Morrison. “In each I made little mistakes but I still went really fast. And so I’m happy about that. I look forward to not making mistakes tomorrow and going faster.”
