Other sports

Played badminton at state level. (theguardian.com, 11 Jul 2016)


Injuries

Two knee surgeries and glandular fever, all in the space of three years. (2xu.com, 1 Feb 2014) Crashed at the National Track Championships in March 2017, resulting in two hits to her head. Taken to hospital for scans, but cleared of any major damage, only suffering a concussion. Kept in overnight for observation, then flew home to Adelaide the next day. (news.com.au, 6 Mar 2017)


Reason: Jokes that the sport found her, with a relative suggesting she try it out. "I made the state team for the (junior) track nationals. I won a medal here, and thought maybe I do like this sport after all. So I dropped badminton." (theguardian.com, 11 Jul 2016)
Memorable: "Winning a gold medal as a pilot in the tandem B 1km time trial at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London." (sbs.com.au, 2 Mar 2016)
Hero: Australian track cyclist Anna MEARES (sbs.com.au, 2 Mar 2016)
Additional information

PILOT
Went to the 2012 London Paralympics as a pilot for Felicity JOHNSON (AUS), where they won gold. "It was very satisfying. Felicity had won silver at Beijing (2008 Paralympics), and my job was to help her fulfil her dream (of gold), so I was stoked." (corporate.olympic.com.au, 16 Apr 2017; theguardian.com, 11 Jul 2016)

In 2009, she had (Australian cyclist) Anna MEARES sign one of her caps, writing: "Steph, maybe one day you'll beat me.". This day happened at the 2014 Australian Track Championships, when MORTON beat MEARES in the keirin. (cyclingnews.com, 22 Apr 2014)
