Hi, I'm Ayshah and this is Newsround.

0:00:040:00:08

Coming up: Bronze for Bolt in his final solo race.

0:00:080:00:11

The world's biggest heart goes on display.

0:00:110:00:14

And the little lamb who had a lucky break.

0:00:140:00:19

Super sprinter Usain Bolt missed out on a gold medal

0:00:280:00:30

in his last solo race at the World Championships

0:00:300:00:33

last night.

0:00:330:00:34

He was beaten by American Justin Gatlin who took the gold.

0:00:340:00:38

As the race ended, Usain went to congratulate him on his win.

0:00:380:00:43

It wasn't the end to Usain's career many were hoping for,

0:00:430:00:46

but his position as a fantastic athlete is not in doubt.

0:00:460:00:49

My start is killing me.

0:00:490:00:50

It is just...

0:00:500:00:52

Normally I would get better through the rounds,

0:00:520:00:55

but it did not come together and that is what killed me.

0:00:550:00:59

It did not come together and I knew that it did not come together,

0:00:590:01:02

but I felt like it was there, do you know what I mean?

0:01:020:01:05

The fact that I did not get it, that is the reason I lost,

0:01:050:01:09

but it is just one of those things.

0:01:090:01:11

Gold medal winner Justin Gatlin said it meant a lot to win the race.

0:01:110:01:14

It is still an amazing night because it is Usain Bolt's last race.

0:01:140:01:17

I've had so many victories and so many losses, and to be able

0:01:170:01:20

to run against him throughout the years, you know,

0:01:200:01:22

it is an amazing night.

0:01:220:01:26

Staying with sport and he's already got an Olympic gold,

0:01:260:01:28

and took another two gold medals at the World Swimming Championships,

0:01:280:01:31

and now Adam Peaty has been answering your questions.

0:01:310:01:33

Watch this.

0:01:330:01:37

Hello, Issy.

0:01:460:01:47

If I could do any other sport, I would probably do boxing

0:01:470:01:50

because I love that sport, I love watching it when I am at home

0:01:500:01:53

and it is something I have had a passion for from a young age.

0:01:530:01:57

Hello, Adam.

0:01:570:01:58

My question for you is how do you get a six-pack?

0:01:580:02:00

A six-pack is a lot of ab work, but at the same time,

0:02:000:02:04

a very, very good diet, no junk food at all, no crisps,

0:02:040:02:07

no chocolate, no fizzy drinks.

0:02:070:02:09

Before my race, I get ready, I just put my headphones in,

0:02:160:02:24

a little bit of meditation, I like to be calm and relaxed

0:02:240:02:27

and then I start to get a little bit up for it,

0:02:270:02:30

take my caffeine, and hopefully get a little bit angry as well to get me

0:02:300:02:33

out there and swimming fast.

0:02:330:02:35

Rita from Woking asks, "How do you motivate yourself

0:02:350:02:37

to keep training even when you're tired and you do not want to?"

0:02:370:02:40

A great question, Rita.

0:02:400:02:43

If you have that underlying motivation that is going to be

0:02:430:02:46

stronger than anything else, you will pick yourself up those days

0:02:460:02:48

that you do not want to and surround yourself with positive people,

0:02:480:02:51

people that are on the same journey as you, and hopefully

0:02:510:02:54

you will achieve those dreams.

0:02:540:02:55

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

0:02:550:02:58

When I was younger I wanted to be a Royal Marine.

0:02:580:03:00

I wanted to be in the army from a very young age

0:03:000:03:03

because I was obsessed by that kind of regiment and camaraderie,

0:03:030:03:06

but then I found something that I was good at, swimming,

0:03:060:03:08

and I am still getting that kind of camaraderie in the group as well.

0:03:080:03:12

For now, I am just going to be a swimmer.

0:03:120:03:16

Next, there are more than 11 million people in the UK with some

0:03:160:03:19

form of hearing loss.

0:03:190:03:20

These deaf children have been telling the BBC how they'd

0:03:200:03:23

like hearing people to treat them.

0:03:230:03:25

Thanks

0:04:290:04:29

Thanks for

0:04:290:04:29

Thanks for that

0:04:290:04:29

Thanks for that advice.

0:04:290:04:31

The world's largest heart has gone on display

0:04:310:04:33

at Toronto's Royal Ontario Museum.

0:04:330:04:35

It belonged to a blue whale whose body had washed up on a river bank

0:04:350:04:38

in Canada three years ago.

0:04:380:04:41

The organ is almost as big as a person, and would have weighed

0:04:410:04:46

at least 181kg before it was removed.

0:04:460:04:48

It's helping scientists understand more about the blue whale's body.

0:04:480:04:50

The blue whale is the biggest species of animal that has ever

0:04:500:04:53

lived on Earth, so bigger than any dinosaur.

0:04:530:05:02

Most of the time, blue whale carcasses, they actually sink,

0:05:020:05:04

because blue whales do not have as much fat or blubber

0:05:040:05:07

as other species of whales.

0:05:070:05:08

This is really the first and only blue whale heart.

0:05:080:05:11

We are getting precise measurements that people were just sort of

0:05:110:05:13

estimating before.

0:05:130:05:17

To the 9-year-old boy who got in touch with Nasa about a job

0:05:170:05:20

they recently posted.

0:05:200:05:21

The space agency are looking for a planetary protection officer.

0:05:210:05:31

In a letter, Jack from New Jersey in America said: "I may be nine,

0:05:360:05:40

but I think I would be perfect for the job." While Jack

0:05:400:05:42

didn't get the position, he did get a reply saying: "We hope

0:05:420:05:45

to see you here at Nasa one of these days."

0:05:450:05:48

Take a look at this lucky lamb who was rescued

0:05:480:05:50

after hurting her leg.

0:05:500:05:51

Lily the lamb was found shivering in a hedge near a farm last week.

0:05:510:05:55

The farmer found her and adopted her and now she's moved

0:05:550:05:57

in with the sheepdogs in the kitchen.

0:05:570:05:59

That's all from me and the weekend team.

0:05:590:06:01

Newsround's back tomorrow morning with Ricky from 7:40.

0:06:010:06:01
