Billy Morgan wins Bronze at X Games

Billy Morgan wins Bronze at X Games GB Park & Pipe’s wonder boy Billy Morgan conquered the X Games' 57m tall jump and claimed the bronze medal at this weekend’s Snowboard Big Air finals in Oslo, Norway.

Billy stomped his backside 1440 triple cork to win 3rd place on one of the largest jumps ever built. He was the first snowboarder of the night to pull of the prized triple cork and scored a huge 79.33 for the big trick and clean landing.

Watch his winning run here:



He comments "I've always seen X Games as one of the biggest, raddest things out there. So to be on the podium and compete with so many riders I look up to is amazing."

Yuki Kadono from Japan won the gold with 90.66 points, just ahead of Max Parrot from Canada who scored just slight under with 90.33 points.

A few weeks ago, Billy impressed the snow world as he knocked out favourite Max Parrot in the head to head heats at the prestigious Air + Style Snowboard Big Air in Innsbruck. Due to strong winds the final could not take place so taking the results from Round 2, Billy won 5th place at the event.

At the end of last season, Billy Morgan was the first person to land an 1800 quad cork. With Big Air making its debut at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games at PyeongChang in South Korea, the future is looking very bright for GB’s Billy Morgan!
