Billy Morgan: Ever since I started doing triples and being open at the end of them, people have said to me, ‘You could have done a quad’. But I didn’t realistically start thinking about it until four or five months ago. It had just seemed ridiculous for so long, but coming towards the end of the season, and with the fact that I was going in to have surgery to reconstruct my ACL, I thought I might as well just give it a go.
“Our last chance was to come over to Livigno.”
I knew what I had to do. It was basically just the same as the triple – you’ve just got to hold on for longer and you obviously need more airtime. So more than working out how to do the trick right, it was more about finding the right jump.
With my operation date coming up fast, our last chance was to go to Livigno in Italy and try to reshape the jump that they had there already. And it was perfect!
