It's Thursday - you're LIVE with Newsround on CBBC.

:00:00.:00:00.

The highs and lows of being a Winter Olympic star.

:00:00.:00:11.

And uncovering the mystery of the UK's first robot.

:00:12.:00:25.

There's exactly one year to go until the Winter Olympics officially

:00:26.:00:27.

kick off in the Asian country of South Korea.

:00:28.:00:30.

Thousands of athletes from around the world will be

:00:31.:00:32.

We're meeting two Team GB stars in a moment,

:00:33.:00:38.

but first here's Ayshah with what you need to know!

:00:39.:00:42.

The Winter Olympics will happen in Pyeong Chang in South Korea.

:00:43.:00:45.

Like the summer Olympics they take place every four

:00:46.:00:47.

In 2018 athletes will compete in seven sports...

:00:48.:01:01.

102 gold medals are up for grabs and as many as 100

:01:02.:01:04.

countries are expected to take part including Team GB and let's not

:01:05.:01:07.

forget the mascots, Soohorang, the white tiger

:01:08.:01:08.

Well, joining me now are snowboarder Jenny Jones - who won bronze

:01:09.:01:22.

at the last Winter Olympics - and skier Rowan Cheshire.

:01:23.:01:26.

But before we have a chat, let's take a look at you both in action.

:01:27.:01:53.

Breathtaking stuff! It Jenny, do were the first Briton to win a medal

:01:54.:02:02.

on the snow in the Winter Olympics. What was that like? It was amazing,

:02:03.:02:07.

slopes to, it was the first time I'd been in the Olympics for

:02:08.:02:11.

snowboarding so to go there and represent my country at something

:02:12.:02:15.

was amazing. As we saw, it's incredible, I don't know how you do

:02:16.:02:21.

it but it can be quite dangerous. You've both sustained injuries, four

:02:22.:02:25.

years ago, you were supposed to be at the Olympics in Russia but you

:02:26.:02:29.

had an injury. I did one of my side flips and I misjudged the landing,

:02:30.:02:35.

it happens, took a pretty big blow to the head which knocked me out and

:02:36.:02:40.

cause some facial damage, I was unable to compete. How long did it

:02:41.:02:46.

take to recover? Quite a while, I sustained another two concussions

:02:47.:02:50.

after that so it's taken me three years to get over that. But now I am

:02:51.:02:56.

100%. Jenny I know he retired last year but you are looking after some

:02:57.:03:00.

of the younger guys on the team, what are our hopes for 2018? We've

:03:01.:03:08.

got some great athletes coming through, we have the snowboarders

:03:09.:03:14.

coming through, Katie and Billy, we had a World Cup first recently and

:03:15.:03:21.

the new event... It's literally one John, it's huge, they get three hits

:03:22.:03:27.

of the jump and its the best two tricks that you can do. I like the

:03:28.:03:32.

sound of that. We don't have much snow in this country, are we always

:03:33.:03:38.

had a disadvantage? I think not, sometimes, anyway, yes, when we go

:03:39.:03:44.

away to training I feel like we take advantage because we know we have

:03:45.:03:47.

limited time but if people live there they kind of don't make the

:03:48.:03:54.

most of it. And we have the dry slopes, the snow domes. Great stuff,

:03:55.:03:56.

thank you both for coming in. Away from the snow, Leicester City

:03:57.:03:59.

are through to the FA Cup fifth round, after beating Derby County

:04:00.:04:02.

in a replay. But it went down to two

:04:03.:04:04.

goals in extra time. The final score was 3-1

:04:05.:04:15.

to the Foxes thanks The manager Claudio Ranieri says the

:04:16.:04:34.

next focus is the next match. We want to do best for Wii play, we

:04:35.:04:40.

want to go forward in the FA Cup, the Premier League is not so good

:04:41.:04:45.

but we have to stay in the Premier League and the focus is on Sunday.

:04:46.:04:47.

Now this guy isn't the latest Premier League signing.

:04:48.:04:49.

He's a robot called Eric and he's pretty special as robots go,

:04:50.:04:52.

He's a copy of the UK's first ever robot.

:04:53.:04:59.

The original Eric was built in 1928 and worked using gears and

:05:00.:05:02.

However after touring the world Eric went missing, and was

:05:03.:05:05.

That is until the Science Museum launched a project to

:05:06.:05:09.

build a copy of him to share his story with the world.

:05:10.:05:11.

Now Eric is packing a brand-new aluminium body

:05:12.:05:13.

containing wires and motors and has gone on display as part of a big

:05:14.:05:17.

Rust in peace Eric number one, there's a

:05:18.:05:24.

Well there may be two of Eric but there's only one Drake -

:05:25.:05:37.

the Canadian rapper and singer has been named the biggest

:05:38.:05:39.

His song, One Dance, was top of the UK singles chart

:05:40.:05:43.

The next three best selling acts were all British -

:05:44.:05:47.

That's all from me, Newsround's back on CBBC
