(via Sochi 2014 - CBC Sports - Denny Morrison grateful for Gilmore Junio’s sacrifice)

True Olympic spirit.
Q.

"Denny Morrison’s silver medal performance in the men’s 1,000 metre speed skating medal nearly didn’t happen. After falling during the Canadian Olympic team trails, Morrison missed earning a place in the event.

But on Tuesday, fellow Canadian Gilmore Junio gave up his spot in the race, saying that to have Morrison compete would be “in the best interest of the team.”

"When he rang me, I thought he was pulling my leg," said Morrison, of Junio’s decision. "Why would he do it unless he was injured? The coaches knew but decided he was the one to tell me.

"We were at Canada Olympic House with our families and when it came from the horse’s mouth, it was a moment I will never forget."
