forget the mascots, Soohorang, the white tiger
Well, joining me now are snowboarder Jenny Jones - who won bronze
at the last Winter Olympics - and skier Rowan Cheshire.
But before we have a chat, let's take a look at you both in action.
Breathtaking stuff! It Jenny, do were the first Briton to win a medal
on the snow in the Winter Olympics. What was that like? It was amazing,
slopes to, it was the first time I'd been in the Olympics for
snowboarding so to go there and represent my country at something
was amazing. As we saw, it's incredible, I don't know how you do
it but it can be quite dangerous. You've both sustained injuries, four
years ago, you were supposed to be at the Olympics in Russia but you
had an injury. I did one of my side flips and I misjudged the landing,
it happens, took a pretty big blow to the head which knocked me out and
cause some facial damage, I was unable to compete. How long did it
take to recover? Quite a while, I sustained another two concussions
after that so it's taken me three years to get over that. But now I am
100%. Jenny I know he retired last year but you are looking after some
of the younger guys on the team, what are our hopes for 2018? We've
got some great athletes coming through, we have the snowboarders
coming through, Katie and Billy, we had a World Cup first recently and
the new event... It's literally one John, it's huge, they get three hits
of the jump and its the best two tricks that you can do. I like the
sound of that. We don't have much snow in this country, are we always
had a disadvantage? I think not, sometimes, anyway, yes, when we go
away to training I feel like we take advantage because we know we have
limited time but if people live there they kind of don't make the
most of it. And we have the dry slopes, the snow domes. Great stuff,
thank you both for coming in. Away from the snow, Leicester City
are through to the FA Cup fifth round, after beating Derby County
in a replay. But it went down to two
goals in extra time. The final score was 3-1
to the Foxes thanks The manager Claudio Ranieri says the
next focus is the next match. We want to do best for Wii play, we
want to go forward in the FA Cup, the Premier League is not so good
but we have to stay in the Premier League and the focus is on Sunday.
