Denny Morrison is having the Olympics of a lifetime. Three days after taking silver in the mens 1,000-metre long track speed skating event at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Morrison has added a bronze to his cabinet, this time in the 1,500 metres on Saturday. "Its been a long road with a lot of persistence and its finally paid off," an elated Morrison told CBC Sports after the race. Morrison, skating 15th of 20 pairs, capitalized on a strong opening lap to lay down a time of one minute, 45.22 seconds, and was the leader until Polands Zbigniew Brodka topped it for gold in 1:45.00. "What Ive found [in 1,500-metre races] is that I cant go out slow and conservative and try to beat the other guys who finish strong, I have to go out my way go out fast, and just hang on," Morrison said. "And I was able to hang on just enough." There was more drama to come in the final pairing. Dutch skater Koen Verweij finished in a dead heat with Brodka, crossing the line in 1:45.00 as well. When the times were adjusted, Brodka ended up with the gold medal, a mere three thousandths of a second ahead. But it also meant that Morrison had his medal, after an agonizing wait to see if any of the 10 skaters after him could take his place on the podium. "It is [excruciating], you already want to puke," he said. "Youre already so tired and hurting, but man does it feel good to win [a medal]." Mathieu Giroux of Pointe-aux-Trembles, Que., finished in 19th in 1:47.65. Lukas Makowsky of Regina placed 28th in a time of 1:48.51. Teenager Vincent de Haitre of Cumberland, Ont., was 33rd in 1:49.42. Morrisons bronze puts Canadas medal count at 12, with four gold, five silver, and three bronze. Morrison, Giroux and Makowsky are expected to compete in the team pursuit event next week, as they attempt to defend their gold medal from the Vancouver Olympics. Morrisons efforts have been one of the highlights of the Olympics so far for Canada. Not even scheduled to compete in the 1,000-metres after falling in the event at the Canadian trials, Morrison was given a spot in the race thanks to teammate Gilmore Junio, who gave up his. The Fort St. John, B.C., native fully took advantage of the opportunity, taking silver in the 1,000 metres behind Stefan Groothuis of the Netherlands. Defending Olympic champion Mark Tuitert of the Netherlands finished fifth. American Shani Davis continued his disappointing 2014 Olympic campaign with an 11th-place finish. Canada now has two medals in long track, both from Morrison. The Dutch team has dominated the proceedings at Adler Arena, taking four gold and 13 medals so far in only seven races, matching the record set by East Germany in the 1988 Games in Calgary. With five long track events still remaining, the Netherlands will likely surpass that mark in the coming days. To compare, the other nations have eight long track medals combined. Its a big turnaround for the Dutch team from their Vancouver effort in long track, where it finished well below expectations with three gold and only seven medals total.

. The All-Star point guard, sidelined for the past six months with a knee injury, was set to return to the Oklahoma City Thunder lineup for Sunday nights home game against the Phoenix Suns, weeks earlier than expected.VANCOUVER - B.C. Lions head coach Mike Benevides didnt give his team much time to celebrate last weeks dramatic come-from-behind victory over the Calgary Stampeders. Benevides had the Lions in a meeting less than nine hours after their plane touched down after that 25-24 triumph to emphasize that while beating the CFLs last undefeated club was big, it wouldnt mean much if they produce a dud this Friday at home against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Catch the game on TSN starting at 10pm et/7pm pt. "The guys had to have a quick turnaround. They were a little bit surprised by that," said Benevides. "The first message was that I commended them for their performance, but the message that I really wanted to relay was we have really got to prepare to meet a huge challenge from the Tiger-Cats." The coach had good reason to get their attention early. The last time the Lions (3-3) stepped on the field at B.C. Place Stadium they were coming off two big wins and feeling pretty good about themselves, only to get embarrassed 23-6 by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. "Weve got to stay consistent, weve got to find a way to get it done at home. The message has been clear," said Benevides. "The veterans and captains and leaders have echoed that. I think were well prepared based on what Ive seen this week." Lions running back Andrew Harris picked up his third weekly top Canadian award of the season for his performance in Calgary, and said its important the Lions keep pace in a very competitive West Division. "Weve had a tendency to have big games and then come back a little flat," said Harris, who leads the CFL with 722 all-purpose yards. "We have to keep this fire burning and weve got to stay at a high energy and high pace with that same attitude we had against Calgary in the second half. "Its a struggle, but if we want to be a good team in this league and consistent and climb the ladder in the West, we need to be able to do that." B.C. quarterback Kevin Glenn said the Lions will have to be wary of a wounded Tiger-Cats team that is coming off a heartbreaking 27-26 last-second loss against Winnipeg that dropped them to 1-4. "Every week youve got to make sure you come to play," said Glenn. "Weve got a team thats coming in (and) their record could easily be reversed to where they have three, four wins and only one or two losses. "We just want to make sure we come out and we match their intensity. Theyre a team thats going to come in here ready to play given their situation." Glenn will get the start again versus Hamilton, but the Lions will have a familiar face in uniform for the first time since last sseason.dddddddddddd. Travis Lulay is slated to suit up as either the No. 2 or No. 3 quarterback on Friday for the first time since undergoing surgery on his throwing shoulder in the November. It has been a long road back for the Lions incumbent, who had hoped to be ready for the start of the season. "Its exciting. Its not the end of the road, but this is a huge step for me," said Lulay. "Just on a personal level its exciting to know its to the point now where were talking about where on the depth chart as opposed to whether or not youre putting a helmet on." While the Lions offence has struggled at times under Glenns stewardship, the defence is ranked No. 2 in the league and has been lights out all season, led in large part by linebackers Solomon Elimimian and Adam Bighill. The Lions surrendered just three points in the second half against Calgary, allowing time for a B.C. comeback that included two fourth-quarter touchdowns. "Thats the standard that weve set," said Elimimian, who had 10 tackles last week and leads the league with 49 through just six games. "We set high standards for ourselves and we want to continue that because we understand that for this team to get to where we want to get to, the defence is a big part of that." Added Bighill: "It comes down to everyone just doing their job to the best of their ability. Weve got guys making plays. Weve just got to be consistent, because thats what great teams do." After last weeks loss to the Blue Bombers, Tiger-Cats head coach Kent Austin said he would "rather lose 47-0 than lose like that." Despite that frustrating outcome, Hamilton finds itself just one game out of first place in the East Division as all four teams continue to struggle for victories. If the Tiger-Cats are going to walk out of B.C. Place with a win, a good candidate to have a big game would be C.J. Gable. The explosive running back has a team-high 353 yards from scrimmage and is a player the Lions expect to key on. "Defensively we feel like weve been solid. We havent given up a lot in terms of points and yardage," said Bighill. "Theyre going to try to find ways to get (Gable) the ball, whether its throwing him the ball (or) running the ball out of the backfield. Were going to have eyes on him at all times." Notes: The Lions will dress defensive lineman Jabar Westerman after benching him last week in Calgary. The 25-year-old was in court this week on charges he allegedly threw a punch during a nightclub altercation in June. ... The Lions beat the Tiger-Cats 29-26 in their only meeting in Vancouver last season. ... B.C. visits Hamilton on Oct. 4. ' ' '
