Last night (Davo) @aer@aerialskier did family, his friends, his sport and his country proud in the final of the Men’s Aerials, at the PyeongChang 2018 Olympics.
He landed a difficult Quadruple twisting triple flip (Full-DoubleFull-Full), which leaves him with a clean Olympic record, having not crashed an Olympic competition jump in all of 3 of his Olympic appearances. In qualifying he put down his best ever Olympic jump to make the final, with a score of 124.89.
He was gracious and humble, wearing his heart on his sleeve, he celebrated his achievement and congratulated the other sportsmen around him on theirs.
He performed a Quintuple twisting DoubleFull-DoubleFull-Full in training and landed it easily. He is the first and only Australian to ever do so on snow, and few other aerialists have ever attempted the same. This skill holds the highest degree of difficulty of any performed in the Olympic competition this year, one other man attempted it and failed to land.
After a career spanning 13 years he remains Australia’s greatest ever male Aerial Skier. He is also the most decorated, with an Olympic Silver Medal, World Championships Bronze, World Cup Overall Silver, World Cup Gold, and multiple Australian records, among many other accolades.
He has also finished with both his knees and ACLs intact, which in itself is a massive achievement!
He is my brother, he is my hero.
Least importantly of all, he finished in 10th place at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Winter Games.
