Billy Morgan, who took Britain's first Olympic medal for a male snowboarder, competing in the Big Air in Pyeongchang, South Korea, in 2018, has told the PA news agency that he won't be competing in Beijing in 2022.
Morgan, 31, whose Olympic debut was at Sochi in 2014 and whose girlfriend is now expecting their first child this summer, said he plans to take part in some fun events, but wants to keep his rediscovered passion for snowboarding.
He told the news agency he loved boarding again more since easing back on treating the sport more like a job, which he says is what's needed to maintain Olympic competition standards, and that's not the approach he wants to return to.
