The World Cup speed skating season could not have ended any better for Denny Morrison. After winning gold in the 1,000 on Saturday in Germany, he followed that up with another golden performance in the 1,500 on Sunday.
The performance also allowed Morrison to jump from fifth in the overall season standings in the 1,500 to first.
He finished the race 1:45.15.
In a Speed Skating Canada release Morrison admitted the feat was one that he was targeting but he wasn’t sure if it would ever come to fruition.
“It was such a surprise to win the season title. It was a goal of mine in 2007 and 2013, but being injured in 2013 put an end to any chance of that happening. Racing to a win at a clutch moment paid off big time and I couldn’t be happier to have achieved one of my career goals today, one that I thought might never happen.”
