You're watching Newsround live on CBBC.

:00:00.:00:00.

I'm Ricky with all your news this morning, including:

:00:00.:00:12.

And after four years of waiting, wildlife experts finally get lucky.

:00:13.:00:23.

First to the World Athletics Championships in London

:00:24.:00:32.

where Laura Muir says she's 'gutted' after missing out in the women's

:00:33.:00:35.

1500m final by just seven hundredths of a second.

:00:36.:00:39.

It looked like the Brit would take the bronze medal

:00:40.:00:41.

but she was overtaken right at the end.

:00:42.:00:44.

I gave it everything I could. I just tied up. Before I knew it she went

:00:45.:01:05.

past me. Considering the disruptions I've had this year, I gave it all I

:01:06.:01:10.

could announce all I could do. Eye-macro

:01:11.:01:11.

And that's not the only bad news coming from the athletics.

:01:12.:01:14.

The organisers of the competition say a number of competitors,

:01:15.:01:17.

staying at the same hotel in London have caught a severe stomach bug.

:01:18.:01:20.

It's affected Irish hurdler Thomas Barr

:01:21.:01:21.

and the Botswanan Isaac Makwala - both were forced to pull out

:01:22.:01:24.

And when it comes to top sporting competitons,

:01:25.:01:27.

the Olympic and Paralympic Games is nothing without

:01:28.:01:29.

Now the hunt is on to find the next face of the Tokyo 2020 Games

:01:30.:01:37.

Yet there is just over 1000 days to go until the Tokyo Olympic

:01:38.:01:44.

That gives this lot just enough time to find a mascot

:01:45.:01:52.

In 2012, at the London Games, Wenlock and Mandeville kept

:01:53.:01:57.

During the Games in Rio, Brazil, last year, these

:01:58.:02:08.

So, how do you go about finding a mascot to represent Tokyo 2020?

:02:09.:02:21.

Well, a competition in Japan has kicked off, where ordinary

:02:22.:02:23.

people can design and send in their own creations.

:02:24.:02:31.

Becoming one takes a lot of training, as Newsround's Leah

:02:32.:02:37.

found out a few years back when we sent her to

:02:38.:02:40.

The winning designs will be selected by children

:02:41.:02:52.

The winner announced in March next year.

:02:53.:03:02.

It's taken four years of patient watching and waiting but wildlife

:03:03.:03:05.

experts have finally caught of England's rarest animals,

:03:06.:03:07.

Cameras were set up across the North Yorkshire Moors

:03:08.:03:13.

to try to film the pine martens and the sighting is the first

:03:14.:03:16.

The British Army are helping park rangers in parts of Africa

:03:17.:03:26.

to protect elephants there from poachers,

:03:27.:03:29.

who are hunting them for their ivory tusks.

:03:30.:03:31.

These forest elephants are under threat, all because of their tusks.

:03:32.:03:40.

They live in Gabon, a country on the coast of Africa.

:03:41.:03:42.

Most of Gabon is covered in rainforest - stretching

:03:43.:03:45.

for thousands of miles - and most of Africa's forest

:03:46.:03:47.

But poachers want their tusks, which are made of ivory,

:03:48.:03:52.

so they can sell them for lots of money.

:03:53.:03:56.

It's thought 30,000 elephants have been poached in the last ten years,

:03:57.:03:59.

that's more than half the elephants in Gabon.

:04:00.:04:05.

Even though there's a worldwide ban on the sale of ivory,

:04:06.:04:07.

there's still an illegal trade, and poachers can make a lot

:04:08.:04:10.

But the British Army hopes it can help to tackle the problem.

:04:11.:04:15.

Gabon has a real high density of forest elephants.

:04:16.:04:19.

That's why it's got a poaching problem.

:04:20.:04:22.

Out here, training the Gabonese National Parks Agency to combat that

:04:23.:04:25.

means the British Army can make a difference in the fight

:04:26.:04:27.

They are training park rangers on how to find poachers hiding

:04:28.:04:34.

in the forest and help get the evidence they need to get

:04:35.:04:36.

Poaching is a huge problem here but it is hoped

:04:37.:04:45.

that the training the British Army are giving can make

:04:46.:04:47.

Now lots of you are still on your summer holidays -

:04:48.:04:58.

and even though some of you go back to school pretty soon - we want

:04:59.:05:01.

The big question is, have you spent too much time

:05:02.:05:05.

Well, the children's commissioner says you guys should limit

:05:06.:05:10.

the ammount of time you spend on social media.

:05:11.:05:12.

So head to Newsround online, and let us know what you've been up to.

:05:13.:05:19.
