Happy weekend, news fans!
You're with Newsround, coming up...
Find out where these
penguins have been hiding.
And meet the girl who knows how
to make the most of the snow.
Fantastic golden news
for Katarina Johnson-Thompson.
She's won her first major title
at the World Indoor championships
in Birmingham in the pentathalon.
In her last event, she was 2 seconds
ahead of her competitor,
storming through to win the race.
She said it meant a lot to her.
I can't believe it, actually,
for me, I've dreamt
of this for so long,
come here and do it in my hometown,
it's something I dreamed
of doing last summer.
I'm so happy I got to rectify it.
All my family are here today
and that's something that
never normally happens.
I went through a hard year last
year towards the end
of the year and I just wanted my
family to see me actually achieve
something, so I'm so happy they all
got to be here and witness it.
And they were here for every event,
morning and afternoon.
So yeah, it's just something
I still can't believe, really.
Have you been enjoying
the snowy weather?
Well, check out this
place in Northern Canada.
The freezing temperatures don't stop
this girl and her mission to be
a sled dog champion.
Eight dogs, one sled,
one 12-year-old,-40 degrees.
In the north of Canada,
it's very cold and very snowy.
Perfect weather for a sleigh ride.
Every day after school,
Florence takes her sleigh dogs out
in the snow to train.
TRANSLATION: I need to put
little shoes on the dogs.
The snow can be very cold and sharp.
With the shoes, they
won't hurt themselves.
Florence loves racing so much
that she often travels to the US
to take part in competitions there.
TRANSLATION: I like standing
on the sled, exploring new areas
and meeting other sled dog racers
so I can learn from them.
Some of the races last several days.
Florence and her doggy team
are so good that they
often beat the adults.
Keeping it chilly now -
scientists have made a pretty cool
discovery near Antarctica.
1.5 million Penguins!
They were found on an Island
near Antartica called Danger Island.
It's a pretty difficult place
to visit even in the summer as it's
locked up in sea ice for most
of the year - which is why
scientists hadn't discovered them.
Researchers think this could be
the largest colony of Adelie
penguins in the area.
Well, there are plenty more stories
like that at Newsround online,
but we're back here live in a couple
of hours - so see you then!
