Morning, guys, it's Newsround,

it's Wednesday and I'm Ricky!

0:00:070:00:13

Tony Abbott... Happy Valentine's

Day.

0:00:140:00:16

But

0:00:160:00:16

did this idea actually come from the

0:00:170:00:21

Coming up...

0:00:210:00:22

Happy Valentine's Day -

but where did this idea

0:00:220:00:25

actually come from?

0:00:250:00:26

Plus, the teenagers taking

the Winter Olympics by storm!

0:00:260:00:29

OK, guys, straight to South Korea

and the Winter Olympics,

0:00:310:00:33

where today is all about curling,

0:00:330:00:35

which is a bit like

bowls but on ice!

0:00:350:00:39

Team GB's women have just

won their first match

0:00:390:00:41

at the Olympics after they thrashed

the team of Russian athletes 10-3.

0:00:410:00:44

They won bronze last time out.

0:00:440:00:52

Team GB's men -

who took silver fours year ago -

0:00:530:00:55

played earlier and beat Switzerland

in a very exciting match.

0:00:550:00:58

They'll play defending champions

Canada at 11 o'clock.

0:00:580:01:00

And meet the

"Flying Tomato", Shaun White.

0:01:000:01:01

The American has become a three time

Olympic champion after producing

0:01:010:01:04

some outstanding twists and turns

to take gold in the halfpipe final.

0:01:040:01:09

But the Flying Tomato isn't the only

snowboarder making headlines.

0:01:090:01:17

The sport is producing some

of the youngest names to rule

0:01:180:01:20

the Winter Olympics.

0:01:200:01:27

Meet the 17-year-old American sports

stars everyone is talking about.

0:01:410:01:44

First up is California

girl Chloe Kim.

0:01:440:01:45

is a

0:01:450:01:46

Her mum and dad were born and raised

in South Korea before they

0:01:460:01:49

moved to the States,

so where better for Chloe

0:01:490:01:51

to win her first Olympic gold

than in her parents' home country?

0:01:510:01:56

She was amazing in the women's

halfpipe snowboarding final.

0:01:560:01:59

On her first run, she was already

in gold place position, but by her

0:01:590:02:02

third, she was ahead

of her competitors by 8.5 points.

0:02:020:02:04

Pretty fantastic for a 17-year-old

who has been tweeting more

0:02:040:02:07

about wanting to eat ice cream

than win Olympic golds!

0:02:070:02:09

Next up, Red Gerard.

0:02:090:02:10

He's 17, from America, and happens

to be amazing at slopestyle.

0:02:100:02:14

But it nearly went wrong.

0:02:140:02:16

He overslept on the morning

of his final, missing

0:02:160:02:18

his 6am wake-up call!

0:02:180:02:20

But the extra 20 minutes

obviously did him good.

0:02:200:02:23

He went on to win.

0:02:230:02:29

Not only did he claim

America's first gold at the

0:02:290:02:33

Winter Olympics, but he has made

history as the youngest

0:02:330:02:35

American man to win gold since 1928.

0:02:350:02:38

And these two winning teenagers

could be the tip of the iceberg.

0:02:380:02:41

Keep your eyes peeled

for more teen superstars

0:02:410:02:44

ruling in the snow in South Korea.

Nice one, guys!

0:02:440:02:47

Now, it's the most loved up day

of the year for some...

0:02:520:02:55

Happy Valentine's Day!

0:02:550:02:56

But where did it come

from and why did it start?

0:02:560:02:59

It's time for the Big Question.

0:02:590:03:02

You caught me writing my

Valentine's Day card!

0:03:020:03:05

That's terribly convenient

when we take a look at this week's

0:03:050:03:08

Big Question.

0:03:080:03:11

Who invented

Valentine's Day and why?

0:03:130:03:17

What a LOVE-ly Big Question.

0:03:170:03:20

See what I did there?

0:03:200:03:22

Sorry!

0:03:220:03:25

Well, Valentine's Day actually

gets its name from a famous

0:03:250:03:28

Saint called Valentine.

0:03:280:03:31

But there are a lots of different

stories about who he was.

0:03:310:03:35

The popular belief is that he was

a priest from Rome in the third

0:03:350:03:38

century AD.

0:03:380:03:41

Emperor Claudius II had

banned marriage because

0:03:410:03:44

he thought married men

were bad soldiers.

0:03:440:03:47

Valentine thought that this

was wrong, so he broke the

0:03:470:03:52

rules and arranged

marriages in secret.

0:03:520:03:55

When the Emperor found

out, he was furious!

0:03:550:03:58

He threw Valentine in jail

and sentenced him to death!

0:03:580:04:06

But Valentine fell in love

with the jailer's daughter,

0:04:070:04:11

and when he was taken to be

killed, he sent her a love

0:04:110:04:15

letter signed,

"from your Valentine".

0:04:150:04:19

But why in February, you ask?

0:04:190:04:22

Well, there used to be

a Roman festival in

0:04:220:04:24

the middle of February to mark

the start of spring.

0:04:240:04:27

As part of the celebrations,

boys drew names of

0:04:270:04:31

girls from a box.

0:04:310:04:33

They would be boyfriend

and girlfriend during the

0:04:330:04:35

festival, and sometimes,

they would get married.

0:04:350:04:39

This developed into a festival

in the middle of February

0:04:390:04:41

to remember Saint Valentine too,

and Valentine's Day was born!

0:04:410:04:47

A day to express feelings

to those you love.

0:04:470:04:53

Finally, when I say

"pig" you probably think

0:04:530:05:00

about mud

rather than paints and brushes -

0:05:000:05:04

but THAT is about to

change - watch this.

0:05:040:05:11

and

0:05:110:05:14

yes, this is real.

There is something unusual about

0:05:140:05:19

this page. This is a caso or

Pig-casso! What else would she be

0:05:190:05:28

called? She lives in a farm

Sanctuary in a small town in South

0:05:280:05:32

Africa. Their owners say she loves

painting landscapes, and most

0:05:320:05:37

recently tried her snout at a

portrait of US President Donald

0:05:370:05:40

Trump. Is it that one or this one?!

She is famous around the world for

0:05:400:05:47

her PE pics. Trust me, it is not

hogwash! She even got her own art

0:05:470:05:53

exhibition. Let's hope she does not

run out of oink. I mean, Inc!

0:05:530:05:59

She made

0:05:590:06:00
