Morrison cleared to compete following leg injury

Morrison suffered a broken leg while cross country skiing in December 2012.

Following the injury, he said he was hopeful he would recover in time to compete at the Single Distance Speed Skating Championships.

He’s in luck, as the Olympian has been cleared to compete at the upcoming 2013 World Single-Distance Speed Skating Championships, being raced in Sochi, Russia, from March 21 to 24 at the Adler Arena.

The races are being used as a venue test event for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Morrison will race in the 1,000 metre event Friday, and will also be available to race as one of three skaters for Sunday’s team pursuit.
