Disaster strikes Denny Morrison in 1,000 metre qualifier

He was given a re-skate about an hour later, but his time gave him fifth place, leaving him on the outside with Canada given only four berths in the distance for the Games in Sochi.

However, the result does not spell the end of Morrison’s Olympic dreams, because he still has a chance to qualify on Thursday through the 1,500 hundred metres, another of his preferred events.
