Morning, guys, it's Newsround,

it's Wednesday and I'm Ricky!

0:00:140:00:22

Let's get straight to South Korea

and the Winter Olympics, where today

0:00:260:00:29

is all about curling,

which is a bit like

0:00:290:00:31

bowls but on ice!

0:00:310:00:32

Team GB's women have just

won their first match

0:00:320:00:34

at the Olympics after they thrashed

the team of Russian athletes 10-3.

0:00:340:00:37

They won bronze last time out.

0:00:370:00:39

Team GB's men -

who took silver in 2014 -

0:00:390:00:41

played earlier and beat Switzerland

in a very exciting match.

0:00:410:00:43

They'll play defending champions

Canada at 11 o'clock.

0:00:430:00:47

And meet the "Flying Tomato",

otherwise known as Shaun White.

0:00:470:00:50

The American has become a three-time

Olympic champion after producing

0:00:500:00:54

some outstanding twists and turns

and huge air, to take gold

0:00:540:00:58

in the halfpipe final.

0:00:580:01:04

In the capital and tomato isn't the

only snowboarder making headlines.

0:01:080:01:13

The sport is producing some of the

youngest names to rule the Winter

0:01:130:01:17

Olympics. Take a look.

Maybe 17-year-old American sports

0:01:170:01:24

stars everyone is talking about.

First up is California girl Chloe

0:01:240:01:30

Kim. Her mum and dad were born and

raised in South Korea before they

0:01:300:01:34

moved to the States, so where better

for Chloe to win her first Olympic

0:01:340:01:39

gold than in her parents' home

country? She was amazing in the

0:01:390:01:44

women's halfpipe snowboarding final.

On her first run, she was already in

0:01:440:01:48

gold place position, but by her

third, she was ahead of her

0:01:480:01:53

competitors by 8.5 points. Pretty

fantastic for a 17-year-old who has

0:01:530:01:56

been tweeting more about wanting to

eat ice cream than when Olympic

0:01:560:02:00

golds!

0:02:000:02:05

golds! Next up, Red Gerard.

He's 17, from America, and happens

0:02:060:02:11

to be amazing at slopestyle. But it

nearly went wrong. He overslept on

0:02:110:02:15

the morning of his final, missing

his 6am wake-up call! But the extra

0:02:150:02:19

20 minutes obviously did him good.

He went on to win. Not only did he

0:02:190:02:25

claim America's first goal that the

Winter Olympics, but he has made

0:02:250:02:29

history as the first talent youngest

American man to win gold since 1928.

0:02:290:02:33

In these two winning teenagers could

be the tip of the iceberg.

0:02:330:02:37

Keep your eyes peeled for more teen

superstars ruling in the snow in

0:02:370:02:42

South Korea.

Nice one, guys!

0:02:420:02:45

And finally, it's the most loved up

day of the year for some...

0:02:450:02:48

Happy Valentine's Day!

0:02:480:02:49

But where did it come

from and why did it start?

0:02:490:02:52

It's time for the Big Question.

0:02:520:02:58

You caught me writing my Valentine's

Day card! That's terribly convenient

0:03:000:03:04

when we take a look at this week's

Big Question.

0:03:040:03:12

Who invented Valentine's Day and

why?

0:03:120:03:16

What a lovely big question. See what

I did there? Sorry!

0:03:160:03:21

Well, Valentine's Day actually gets

its name from a famous Saint Bald

0:03:250:03:28

Valentine. But there are a lots of

different stories about who he was.

0:03:280:03:33

The popular belief is that he was a

priest from Rome in the third

0:03:330:03:37

century A:D.. Emperor Claudius the

second had banned marriage because

0:03:370:03:43

he thought married men were bad

soldiers. Valentine thought that

0:03:430:03:49

this was wrong, so he broke the

rules and arranged marriages in

0:03:490:03:54

secret. When the Emperor found out,

he was furious! He threw Valentine

0:03:540:03:58

in jail! He sentenced him to death.

0:03:580:04:03

But Valentine fell in love with a

jailer's daughter, when he was taken

0:04:070:04:11

to be killed, he sent her a love

letter signed, from your Valentine.

0:04:110:04:18

But why in February, you ask? Well,

there used to be a Roman festival in

0:04:180:04:23

the middle of February to mark the

start of spring. As part of the

0:04:230:04:28

celebrations, boys drew names of

girls from a box. They would be

0:04:280:04:34

boyfriend and girlfriend during the

festival, and sometimes, they would

0:04:340:04:36

get married. This developed into a

festival in the middle of February

0:04:360:04:42

to remember Saint Valentine too, and

Valentine's Day was born! A day to

0:04:420:04:47

express feelings to those you love.

0:04:470:04:50

That's it from me.

0:04:500:04:53

We're back at 0820 with

a pig who can paint -

0:04:530:04:56

yep, you heard me right.

0:04:560:04:57

Goodbye.
