Happy weekend, news fans!

0:00:060:00:08

I'm Ayshah.

0:00:080:00:08

You're with Newsround, coming up...

0:00:080:00:10

Find out where these

penguins have been hiding.

0:00:100:00:13

And meet the girl who knows how

to make the most of the snow.

0:00:130:00:21

Fantastic golden news

for Katarina Johnson-Thompson.

0:00:250:00:27

She's won her first major title

at the World Indoor championships

0:00:270:00:29

in Birmingham in the pentathalon.

0:00:290:00:31

In her last event, she was 2 seconds

ahead of her competitor,

0:00:310:00:34

storming through to win the race.

0:00:340:00:35

She said it meant a lot to her.

0:00:350:00:43

I can't believe it, actually,

for me, I've dreamt

0:00:430:00:45

of this for so long,

to

0:00:450:00:47

come here and do it in my hometown,

it's something I dreamed

0:00:470:00:50

of doing last summer.

0:00:500:00:52

I'm so happy I got to rectify it.

0:00:520:00:54

All my family are here today

and that's something that

0:00:540:00:56

never normally happens.

0:00:560:00:57

I went through a hard year last

year towards the end

0:00:570:01:00

of the year and I just wanted my

family to see me actually achieve

0:01:000:01:03

something, so I'm so happy they all

got to be here and witness it.

0:01:030:01:07

And they were here for every event,

morning and afternoon.

0:01:070:01:09

So yeah, it's just something

I still can't believe, really.

0:01:090:01:11

Now.

0:01:110:01:13

Have you been enjoying

the snowy weather?

0:01:130:01:14

Well, check out this

place in Northern Canada.

0:01:140:01:16

The freezing temperatures don't stop

this girl and her mission to be

0:01:160:01:19

a sled dog champion.

0:01:190:01:23

Eight dogs, one sled,

one 12-year-old,-40 degrees.

0:01:230:01:31

In the north of Canada,

it's very cold and very snowy.

0:01:310:01:33

Perfect weather for a sleigh ride.

0:01:330:01:38

Every day after school,

Florence takes her sleigh dogs out

0:01:380:01:40

in the snow to train.

0:01:400:01:47

TRANSLATION: I need to put

little shoes on the dogs.

0:01:470:01:49

The snow can be very cold and sharp.

0:01:490:01:52

With the shoes, they

won't hurt themselves.

0:01:520:01:58

Florence loves racing so much

that she often travels to the US

0:01:580:02:01

to take part in competitions there.

0:02:010:02:05

TRANSLATION: I like standing

on the sled, exploring new areas

0:02:050:02:07

and meeting other sled dog racers

so I can learn from them.

0:02:070:02:14

Some of the races last several days.

0:02:140:02:17

Florence and her doggy team

are so good that they

0:02:170:02:19

often beat the adults.

0:02:190:02:25

Keeping it chilly now -

scientists have made a pretty cool

0:02:250:02:33

discovery near Antarctica.

0:02:350:02:37

1.5 million Penguins!

0:02:370:02:40

They were found on an Island

near Antartica called Danger Island.

0:02:400:02:42

It's a pretty difficult place

to visit even in the summer as it's

0:02:420:02:45

locked up in sea ice for most

of the year - which is why

0:02:450:02:49

scientists hadn't discovered them.

0:02:490:02:50

Researchers think this could be

0:02:500:02:54

the largest colony of Adelie

penguins in the area.

0:02:540:02:56

Incredible!

0:02:560:02:57

Well, there are plenty more stories

like that at Newsround online,

0:02:570:03:00

but we're back here live in a couple

of hours - so see you then!
