The Winter Olympics will happen in Pyeong Chang in South Korea.


Like the summer Olympics they take place every four

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

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.

He's a copy of the UK's first ever robot.
