Another star from Australia's "Flying Kangaroos" aerials team, 33 year-old David Morris has decided to call it a day and retire after 15 years of training and competing on the highest level.

Since his debut on the aerials tour in 2009 Morris competed in 44 World Cups, four World Championships and three Winter Olympic Games with his highlight performance coming in Sochi, where he won the silver medal. He also placed second at the 2017 World Championships in Sierra Nevada and is one of only four people to have ever landed a quintuple-twisting triple flip on snow.

Despite hanging his ski boots up, Morris won't be taking a break from sport and will continue to inspire new generations as a coach.

Congratulations David on a great and successful career and good luck for the future.
