Hi, I'm Ricky, with your final

Newsround update for today.

0:00:140:00:16

And first up, news

from Pyeongchang, where

0:00:160:00:19

the Winter Olympics are under way.

0:00:190:00:21

Team GB medal hopeful Elise Christie

took to the ice this morning

0:00:210:00:23

in the 500m short-track

speed skating heats.

0:00:230:00:28

And it was a great start for her

first race of the Games so far.

0:00:280:00:32

She beat her opponents to win

the heat and she set a brand-new

0:00:320:00:35

Olympic record while doing it.

0:00:350:00:39

Elise is now through

to the quarterfinals.

0:00:390:00:41

Here's what she had

to say after the race...

0:00:410:00:45

I went hard for the first lap

and a half because I am

0:00:450:00:48

practising my start a lot,

as I said before.

0:00:480:00:50

And it went very well

and I was just trying to maintain

0:00:500:00:53

a good speed after that.

0:00:530:00:54

So I cannot complain really, if I've

got more in the bag than that,

0:00:540:00:58

then that is a good thing.

0:00:580:00:59

I do not think I have been nervous

like that for about six years.

0:00:590:01:02

It was not even being scared

of my skating, I was just...

0:01:020:01:05

I cannot explain it.

0:01:050:01:07

I think because everyone back

home has waited so long

0:01:070:01:10

for me to skate again,

I was so nervous, and I was like,

0:01:100:01:13

maybe I'm not going to do this

because I was so nervous.

0:01:130:01:16

But actually it was fine and I got

up to the line and I was excited.

0:01:160:01:20

I'm just glad I've got to race

in front of everyone again.

0:01:200:01:24

Well, Elise was feeling

the pressure, and she's

0:01:240:01:26

not the only one.

0:01:260:01:27

Earlier this morning I caught

up with Amy Williams,

0:01:270:01:29

who won gold at the Winter Games

in Vancouver, eight years ago.

0:01:290:01:32

She knows exactly what this year's

athletes are going through.

0:01:320:01:39

Every athlete knows

that they want to win a medal,

0:01:390:01:43

because they want to stand

on the podium.

0:01:430:01:45

They've done all the

years of hard work.

0:01:450:01:47

And then each sport has

to say which medals,

0:01:470:01:50

and how many they will target for.

0:01:500:01:52

And then there's that

pressure on the whole team.

0:01:520:01:54

But there's still no greater

pressure than the pressure that

0:01:540:01:56

an athlete puts on themselves.

0:01:560:02:00

But when you know that

lots of funding has gone

0:02:000:02:02

into your sport and you have

to bring home a medal,

0:02:020:02:05

it's really hard.

0:02:050:02:06

So, psychologically in your head,

you have to kind of think

0:02:060:02:09

on that and then park it,

stand on the start line, perform

0:02:090:02:12

and hope that your result happens.

0:02:120:02:18

Now, in 2010, you got gold

in the women's skeleton,

0:02:180:02:20

and you kind of became this star

overnight - all this

0:02:200:02:23

attention on you.

0:02:230:02:25

What's it like when you win

a medal at an Olympics?

0:02:250:02:28

What is that feeling like?

0:02:280:02:30

It's funny, because I knew my

training times were really good,

0:02:300:02:33

I knew I could win a medal,

but I never allowed

0:02:330:02:36

myself to think about it.

0:02:360:02:37

And then it happens,

and all of a sudden you're

0:02:370:02:39

going through the media zone

which is the area that you have to

0:02:390:02:42

walk through with the world's press.

0:02:420:02:48

You've got Clare Balding

interviewing you,

0:02:480:02:49

you've got, you know,

0:02:490:02:50

German TV all excited,

whoever it might be.

0:02:500:02:52

And then your land home

and you don't realise what's been

0:02:520:02:56

going on back home when you're

in a foreign country.

0:02:560:02:58

You get on that flight,

and I specifically still remember,

0:02:580:03:00

the first time I'd been

in first-class, seat

0:03:000:03:02

number 1A - amazing!

0:03:020:03:05

But I look back now and it was eight

years ago, and it's like this blur,

0:03:050:03:09

as if it never happened.

0:03:090:03:10

When I watch that girl

in all the replays and clips,

0:03:100:03:13

was that girl me?

0:03:130:03:14

Wow.

0:03:140:03:15

It's a really strange...

0:03:150:03:16

Like an out of body experience?

0:03:160:03:18

An out of body experience.

0:03:180:03:19

But I wish I could find

a genie in a lamp.

0:03:190:03:21

I wish I could go back and relive it

all again, and write a diary,

0:03:210:03:25

because you think you're

going to remember all

0:03:250:03:27

of it and you don't.

0:03:270:03:28

You remember little snippets.

0:03:280:03:30

Well, listen, thank you so much

for coming in to chat to Newsround,

0:03:300:03:33

and hopefully over the next few

weeks we'll see those medals

0:03:330:03:36

kind of go up and up.

0:03:360:03:37

Fingers crossed.

0:03:370:03:38

I hope so.

0:03:380:03:39

Fingers crossed.

0:03:390:03:43

In case you missed it,

you can take a look at some

0:03:430:03:46

of the best bits from yesterday's

fantastic Olympics opening ceremony

0:03:460:03:48

over at Newsround online.

0:03:480:03:49

While you're there, check out this

week's Big Question,

0:03:490:03:51

which is all about Valentine's Day.

0:03:510:03:59

Now to a bit of sport

slightly closer to home.

0:03:590:04:02

The women's Six Nations game

between England and Wales kicked

0:04:020:04:04

off around an hour ago.

0:04:040:04:07

England currently lead

26-0 at half-time.

0:04:070:04:11

We'll update you with the final

score tomorrow morning.

0:04:110:04:17

Now what do you get

if you have a sleepy kangaroo,

0:04:170:04:19

some partying "astronauts"

and a really long zip wire?

0:04:190:04:21

Strange, stranger,

strangest, of course!

0:04:210:04:29

This has to be one of

the cutest kangaroos ever!

0:04:290:04:31

When he gets tired, instead

of hopping into his mum's pouch,

0:04:310:04:35

he lands in a pillowcase!

0:04:350:04:39

He's being looked after at

the Kangaroo Sanctuary

0:04:390:04:41

in Alice Springs, in Australia,

and what is even stranger,

0:04:410:04:44

he's called Bradley.

0:04:440:04:47

Oh, doesn't he look comfy?

0:04:470:04:52

Now, we are raving about this party.

0:04:520:04:53

They are on a special plane

that is normally used

0:04:530:04:56

by astronauts to see how it feels

being weightless in space.

0:04:560:05:01

But instead, these guys

had a 90-minute party,

0:05:010:05:04

complete with flashing

lights and DJs.

0:05:040:05:07

Who needs dancing

when you can float?

0:05:070:05:12

And if you are afraid

of heights, look away now.

0:05:120:05:14

This is the longest zip wire

in the world at a record-breaking

0:05:140:05:18

2.8 kilometres, that is longer

than 28 football pitches!

0:05:180:05:21

It's in the United Arab Emirates,

in the Middle East, and starts

0:05:210:05:26

in the mountains before plunging

down through the hills.

0:05:260:05:30

You go at over 90 mph.

0:05:300:05:34

That's even faster than you are

allowed to go on the motorway!

0:05:340:05:37

I think you'd have to be pretty

strange to want to go on it.

0:05:370:05:40

I'd be way too scared!

0:05:400:05:44

That's it from us for today.

0:05:440:05:48

We'll be back tomorrow morning.

0:05:480:05:50

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday.

0:05:500:05:51

See ya!
