Hi, Ricky here.

0:00:030:00:04

This is your Saturday

lunchtime Newsround.

0:00:040:00:06

Here's what we've got for you.

0:00:060:00:09

There's no greater pressure

0:00:090:00:10

than the pressure an anthlete

puts on themselves.

0:00:100:00:13

Gold medalist Amy Williams

tells Newsround

0:00:130:00:15

what it's like to be

a Team GB athelete!

0:00:150:00:20

Plus the cutest thing

you'll see today.

0:00:200:00:27

First up,

news from PyeongChang,

0:00:330:00:35

where the Winter

Olympics are underway.

0:00:350:00:37

Team GB medal hopeful Elise Christie

took to the ice this morning,

0:00:370:00:41

in the 500 metre short track

speed skating heats.

0:00:410:00:45

And it was a great start

for Elise in her first race

0:00:450:00:48

of the games so far.

0:00:480:00:50

She beat opponents from China,

Korea and France to win the heat,

0:00:500:00:55

and she set a brand new Olympic

record while doing it.

0:00:550:00:57

She's now through

to the quarter finals.

0:00:570:01:02

Next up, imagine how nervous Elise

must have been on that start line.

0:01:020:01:05

Well, earlier this morning,

I caught up with Amy Williams,

0:01:050:01:08

who won gold at the Winter Games

in Vancouvereight years ago.

0:01:080:01:11

She knows exactly how

this year's athletes are feeling.

0:01:110:01:17

Every athlete knows

that they want to win a medal,

0:01:170:01:20

because they want to

stand on the podium.

0:01:200:01:22

They've done all the

years of hard work.

0:01:220:01:28

And then each sport has

to say which medals,

0:01:280:01:30

and how many they will target for.

0:01:300:01:32

And then there's that

pressure on the whole team.

0:01:320:01:34

But there's still

no greater pressure

0:01:340:01:35

than the pressure that

an athlete puts on themselves.

0:01:350:01:37

But when you know that

lots of funding has gone

0:01:370:01:40

into your sport and you have

to bring home a medal,

0:01:400:01:42

it's really hard.

0:01:420:01:43

So, psychologically in your head,

you have to kind of think on

0:01:430:01:46

that and then park it,

stand on the start line, perform

0:01:460:01:51

and hope that your result happens.

0:01:510:01:54

Now, in 2010, you got gold

in the women's skeleton,

0:01:540:01:57

and you kind of became

this star overnight -

0:01:570:01:59

all this attention on you.

0:01:590:02:01

What's it like when you win

a medal at an Olympics?

0:02:010:02:04

What is that feeling like?

0:02:040:02:06

It's funny, because I knew my

training times were really good,

0:02:060:02:09

I knew I could win a medal,

0:02:090:02:11

but I never allowed

myself to think about it.

0:02:110:02:13

And then it happens,

and all of a sudden you're

0:02:130:02:16

going through the media zone

which is the area that you have to

0:02:160:02:19

walk through with the world's press.

0:02:190:02:20

You got Clare Balding

interviewing you,

0:02:200:02:22

you've got,

you know, German TV all excited,

0:02:220:02:25

whoever it might be.

0:02:250:02:28

And then your land home

and you don't realise

0:02:280:02:31

what's been going on back home

when you're in a foreign country.

0:02:310:02:34

You get on that flight,

and I specifically still remember,

0:02:340:02:36

the first time I'd been

in first-class,

0:02:360:02:38

seat number 1A - amazing!

0:02:380:02:40

But I look back now

and it was eight years ago,

0:02:400:02:43

and it's like this blur,

as if it never happened.

0:02:430:02:46

When I watch that girl

in all the replays and clips,

0:02:460:02:49

was that girl me?

0:02:490:02:50

Wow.

0:02:500:02:51

It's a really strange...

0:02:510:02:52

Like an out of body experience?

0:02:520:02:53

An out of body experience.

0:02:530:02:54

But I wish I could find

a genie in a lamp.

0:02:540:02:57

I wish I could go back and relive

it all again, and write a diary,

0:02:570:03:01

because you think you're

going to remember all of it

0:03:010:03:03

and you don't.

0:03:030:03:04

You remember little snippets.

0:03:040:03:05

Well, listen, thank you so much

for coming in to chat to Newsround,

0:03:050:03:08

and hopefully over the next few

weeks we'll see those medals

0:03:080:03:11

kind of go up and up.

0:03:110:03:13

Fingers crossed.

0:03:130:03:14

I hope so.

0:03:140:03:15

Fingers crossed.

0:03:150:03:17

Now, here's a sport that

you won't be seeing played

0:03:170:03:19

over in PyeongChang - ice cricket!

0:03:190:03:22

The match in Switzerland

was played on a fake grass

0:03:220:03:25

carpet laid over the snow

and with a bright orange ball.

0:03:250:03:29

Cricketing legends from around

the world joined forces to take part

0:03:290:03:31

in the chilly but friendly games.

0:03:310:03:34

Looks like a good excuse

for a hot chocolate if you ask me.

0:03:340:03:40

Next, some big news

in the world of space travel.

0:03:400:03:45

The most powerful rocket

in the world, the Falcon Heavy,

0:03:450:03:47

was successfully launched

into space on Tuesday night.

0:03:470:03:49

Houston - run VT!

0:03:490:03:52

Five, four, three, two, one...

0:03:520:03:56

Blastoff!

0:03:560:03:59

It's taken seven years

but, boys and girls,

0:03:590:04:01

that is what you call a successful

launch of the most powerful

0:04:010:04:04

rocket ever built.

0:04:040:04:06

The Falcon Heavy is

the brainchild of SpaceX,

0:04:060:04:09

the company run

by South African Elon musk.

0:04:090:04:12

Never heard of him?

0:04:120:04:13

Well, it's rumoured that

Robert Downey Junior based

0:04:130:04:16

the character of Tony Stark,

aka Iron Man, on him.

0:04:160:04:20

It kind of gives you an idea

about the type of guy he is.

0:04:200:04:24

Back to the rocket.

0:04:240:04:26

It used 27 separate engines

to launch it into space.

0:04:260:04:29

That's around the same power as 18

Boeing 747 aeroplanes taking off,

0:04:290:04:34

and twice as powerful as any other

rocket in use at the minute.

0:04:340:04:38

It means the Falcon Heavy can carry

twice as much into space,

0:04:380:04:41

64 tonnes, to be exact.

0:04:410:04:43

That's basically five

double-decker buses.

0:04:430:04:46

It opens up the possibility

for astronauts to travel further,

0:04:460:04:50

and for bigger robots to be sent

to planets like Mars.

0:04:500:04:54

On top of that, the boosters

that the Falcon uses

0:04:540:04:57

to power it

into space are reusable.

0:04:570:04:59

Once detached from the main body

of the craft,

0:04:590:05:01

they should fly

themselves back to Earth.

0:05:010:05:05

Now that is cool.

0:05:050:05:07

So who was lucky enough to be

on the first flight?

0:05:070:05:11

Well, no humans, unfortunately.

0:05:110:05:13

You see, a lot of test

flights can go wrong.

0:05:130:05:15

But that's not to say

the spaceship was empty.

0:05:150:05:19

Bring forth Starman!

0:05:190:05:22

Yeah, that's a dummy riding

a cherry red car to Mars,

0:05:220:05:24

with the radio on of course!

0:05:240:05:29

Finally, you won't see

anything cuter

0:05:290:05:30

than these

tiny bear cubs today.

0:05:300:05:32

They were found abandoned

in a cardboard box

0:05:320:05:34

by these people living in a remote

part of Moscow, in Russia.

0:05:340:05:38

They took the baby bears

in and looked after them,

0:05:380:05:41

before handing them over

to animal welfare experts.

0:05:410:05:44

The orphaned cubs are being fed

with baby food and warm milk.

0:05:440:05:47

It's hoped that they will be

released back into the wild

0:05:470:05:50

when they're older.

0:05:500:05:53

We're back in an hour.

0:05:540:05:57
