Billy Morgan

The British snowboarder Billy Morgan has landed the sport’s first ever 1800 quadruple cork. The rider, who represented Great Britain in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, was in Livigno, Italy, when he achieved the man-oeuvre. It involves flipping four times, while body also spins with five complete rotations on a sideways or downward-facing axis.

The trick had long been considered unachievable by some. However, as long ago as 2013, snowboard fans online had been pegging Morgan as the rider capable of landing it.

Afterwards, Morgan revealed his relief, having spent some time building up to the attempt. For riders at his level, this usually involves starting off with a huge inflated crash pad to land on, in order to perfect the momentum and speed required for a trick before trying to ride out of it. He also said the trick could have been cleaner, because he put a hand down to steady his landing.
