Winter Olympics 2014: BBC and snowboarder Billy Morgan in misunderstanding over post-snowboard slopestyle final comments
Morgan had said 'huck it' which is a slang snowboarding term which caused presenter Hazel Irvine to apologise for what she thought was a swear word
Saturday 08 February 2014
British snowboarder Billy Morgan and the BBC were involved in a misunderstanding on Saturday following the 24-year-old's comments over his performance in the Winter Olympics snowboard slopestyle final.
Morgan, who finished 10th at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park, had his interview cut short after appearing to swear when asked how he approached his runs.
BBC presenter Hazel Irvine immediately issued an on-air apology although it appears the Southampton man may have been misheard.
GB Snowboard confirmed to Press Association Sport that Morgan had said: "I just thought 'huck it'."
'Huck it' is a slang term used by snowboarders to describe 'going for it'.
Morgan is understood to be very relaxed about the mix-up.
