From starting on the dry slopes aged 14 to appearing at Sochi 2014, Billy Morgan’s rise up the snowboarding ranks has been impressive.
Morgan began his sporting career as an acrobatic gymnast, but switched to snowboarding. The Brit landed the world’s first triple rodeo flip in December 2011, then in April 2015, he again made history by becoming the world’s first rider to land a 1800 quadruple cork.
Morgan finished tenth in the men’s slopestyle final at Sochi 2014, having already sealed his first World Cup podium when he took bronze in Sierra Nevada the year before. In 2017, he achieved two further World Cup podium finishes, picking up bronze in both.
