Billy Morgan had to deal with a snapped cruciate ligament in the build-up to Sochi four years ago but the introduction of big air to the PyeongChang stable gives him renewed hope of a medal.

He underwent surgery the following April and was sidelined for five months, but came back strongly to win gold in the big air competition in the 2016 X Games in Oslo.
Now big air is making its debut in PyeongChang, the 28-year-old has another target to aim for. He is not short of a trick or two either: in 2011 he landed the first triple rodeo flip, and in 2015 he was the first man to land a 1800 quadruple cork.
A former gymnast, Morgan started snowboarding on a dry slope in Southampton.
