Taiki Morii started sit-skiing after watching the 1998 Nagano Winter Games while in hospital.
He is a three-time Paralympian and while he has enjoyed success at the highest level away from the Paralympic Games, he has also medalled at every single Games since 2006.
Morii won a silver medal at the Torino 2006 Paralympic Winter Games in giant slalom, a silver medal in downhill at the Vancouver 2010 Games and a bronze medal in the super-G. He followed that up in 2014 with a super-G silver in Sochi.
Morii got his first taste of gold taking top spot in giant slalom at the 2011 World Championships.
His form continued in 2013 where the sit-skier won world titles in giant slalom, super combined and super-G, in addition to picking up a silver medal in the slalom.
Morii has a healthy rivalry with fellow countryman Takeshi Suzuki and between them they won four medals at the 2015 World Championships, where only Suzuki left with a coveted gold.
Morii will get the chance to change that in 2017 at the World Para Alpine Skiing Championships in Tarvisio, Italy.
He heads to Italy as overall 2015-16 World Cup winner, as well as claiming individual titles in slalom and giant slalom.
