B.C. Olympic speed skater Denny Morrison is in a U.S. hospital recovering from a stroke.
The Fort St. John native suffered the stroke last night.
A statement from Speed Skating Canada says Jodie Spence, a member of the long-track national team, was travelling with him and noticed signs in the afternoon.
She immediately drove him to hospital.
In the statement, Morrison says doctors told him he recovered quickly because of good health and he thanks everyone for their messages of support.
