Curler John Morris joining Jim Cotter's rink
Olympic gold winner parted ways with Kevin Martin
Veteran curler John Morris will get another crack at representing Canada at the Olympic Games.
Morris has joined Jim Cotter's rink from Kelowna, B.C., as the team prepares for the Canadian Olympic pre-trial competition in November.
The top two men's and women's teams at that event will advance to the Canadian curling trials with a spot at the 2014 Sochi Games on the line.
Morris spent the last seven seasons as a third on Kevin Martin's Edmonton rink.
He helped the team win an Olympic gold medal, two Canadian men's curling championships and one world title over that span.
Morris parted ways with Martin last week even though Martin had already qualified for the Canadian curling trials.
Morris said he would take some time to decide on his future, but within a week he had already found a new rink to call home.
