Team GB short track speed skaters ranked 13th after 2 of 4 Olympic qualifier meets

morrisons_webOttawa natives Samantha and Hannah Morrison will need some big performances in a pair of November World Cups in order to secure a 2018 Winter Olympic berth for their Great Britain women’s 3,000-metre short track speed skating relay team. With 9th and 14th-place finishes in the season’s first 2 events in Hungary and the Netherlands, their team is currently ranked 13th overall. There are 8 spots up for grabs for the PyeongChang Games, which will be awarded after the 4 fall World Cups. The Morrison sisters’ father, former Gloucester Concordes head coach Dave Morrison, was born in the UK while his father was there on a military posting, which gives his girls the right to compete for Team GB thanks to their dual citizenship.
