Victorian skier David Morris burst onto the Olympic scene in 2010, competing in aerials at the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games. Morris was introduced to aerial skiing in 2004 after meeting Kirstie Marshall at a gymnastics display. His first jumps on snow were later that year off a jump that he built with teammates on the Mt. Buller aerial site. In February 2006, he became the sole male member of the aerials team - the first in 10 years. With a background in gymnastics and skiing, Morris took to the sport immediately and competed in his first international competition in 2007. At the Vancouver Games, Morris punched above his weight, executing two outstanding jumps in qualification to produce a combined scored of 221.02 from his triple twisting triple somersault and his new quadruple trick. His score placed him 13th, missing the 12-man final by 0.89 of a point.
