Hello, Hayley here with your

Saturday Newsround.

0:00:120:00:14

First up, Team GB have

bagged their second medal at

0:00:140:00:17

the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

0:00:170:00:20

Izzy Atkin has won bronze in the ski

slopestyle competition

0:00:200:00:22

and here's how she did it.

0:00:220:00:25

This is the face of history.

0:00:250:00:28

Great Britain's first ever

Olympic medal on skis.

0:00:280:00:31

Slopestyle is about nailing

the rails and avoiding

0:00:310:00:33

the bumps on the jumps.

0:00:330:00:35

And 19-year-old Izzy

Atkin does it in style.

0:00:350:00:40

Born and raised in the United States

to a British father and a Malaysian

0:00:400:00:43

mother, Izzy perfected her skills

on the slopes of Maine

0:00:430:00:46

when she was just three.

0:00:460:00:48

Before her final run,

Atkin was sitting in fourth place

0:00:480:00:51

so this had to be flawless.

0:00:510:00:55

Biggest run of her life starts now.

0:00:550:00:59

Every twist, every jump,

pushing it to the limit,

0:00:590:01:02

she laid down a score good enough

for third but could anyone else take

0:01:020:01:05

a medal away from her?

0:01:050:01:08

Oh no!

0:01:080:01:09

She's down.

0:01:090:01:12

Great Britain's Izzy

Atkin takes the bronze.

0:01:120:01:16

There were tonnes of big names

in the field, you know,

0:01:160:01:18

it could have been anyone's.

0:01:180:01:20

I was standing at the bottom

after my third and final run

0:01:200:01:23

and I knew I had skied the best

I could and I was just waiting

0:01:230:01:26

for those last three or four girls

to drop and my heart was racing.

0:01:260:01:30

But yeah, I can't believe it.

0:01:300:01:31

Well, believe it Izzy!

0:01:310:01:34

You're an Olympic bronze medallist.

0:01:340:01:42

Britain has the chance for more

medals. Lizzy Yarnold and Laura

0:01:430:01:51

Deas. But it was a bad morning for a

Elise Christie who crashed out of

0:01:510:01:59

her 1500 metres semifinal.

0:01:590:02:01

A strong earthquake has shaken

southern and central areas

0:02:010:02:04

of Mexico in Central America.

0:02:040:02:06

The quake had a magnitude

of 7.2, causing

0:02:060:02:08

buildings to shake.

0:02:080:02:10

Many people in Mexico City ran

into the streets for safety

0:02:100:02:13

but there have been no reports

so far of any deaths.

0:02:130:02:15

For many years now, the illegal

hunting of animals, or poaching,

0:02:150:02:18

has been a big problem

for wildlife in Africa.

0:02:180:02:20

But Now British soldiers

are being sent to Africa to help

0:02:200:02:23

protect animals like

elephants, lions and rhino.

0:02:230:02:27

They aim to train Rangers in Malawi

so that they can look

0:02:270:02:29

after and protect the animals

in the future.

0:02:290:02:33

Football now and the next

round of the famous FA Cup

0:02:330:02:36

competition got under way last night

but there were no

0:02:360:02:38

big, shock results.

0:02:380:02:39

Chelsea beat Championship side

Hull City 4-0, including this

0:02:390:02:43

amazing goal from Brazilian player,

Willian.

0:02:430:02:47

In last night's other match

a Jamie Vardy header was enough

0:02:470:02:51

to give Leicester a 1-0 victory over

Championship side Sheffield United.

0:02:510:02:56

Roger Federer has become

the oldest player in tennis

0:02:560:02:58

history to reach number one

in the men's world rankings.

0:02:580:03:02

The 36-year-old took the top spot

after beating Robin Haase

0:03:020:03:05

at the Rotterdam Open in three sets.

0:03:050:03:08

The Swiss superstar replaces

Rafael Nadal at the top

0:03:080:03:11

of the rankings and says it's

"a dream come true".

0:03:110:03:17

Next, Marvel are back

with a brand new superhero

0:03:170:03:19

film, 'Black Panther'.

0:03:190:03:20

But is it any good?

0:03:200:03:21

Newsround sent four 13-year-old

movie fans to find out!

0:03:210:03:27

We are home.

0:03:270:03:35

I don't know what I thought

about Black Panther.

0:03:370:03:39

Then I watched it and it was quite

liberating to see a positive

0:03:390:03:42

representation of black

people in Africa.

0:03:420:03:46

It seems basic to say "it's really

good", but that's the only words

0:03:460:03:48

I can say right now.

0:03:480:03:50

It was really empowering in a way,

because it wasn't just

0:03:500:03:53

all male main characters,

there was a lot of women as well,

0:03:530:03:56

it was very diverse for everyone.

0:03:560:03:58

My son, it is your time.

0:03:580:04:04

My favourite character was really

good with technology and she was

0:04:040:04:07

also like very strong willed.

0:04:070:04:12

She was very smart, she was very

supportive towards her brother,

0:04:120:04:15

but she wasn't deemed lower

than her brother.

0:04:150:04:17

You get to decide what kind of King

you are going to be.

0:04:170:04:25

I didn't expect it to be

so colourful and vibrant.

0:04:250:04:33

And also the soundtrack

blew me away as well.

0:04:330:04:35

The fabrics of Nigeria and Ghana

are shown in the clothing they wore

0:04:350:04:38

and the bright colours and patterns.

0:04:380:04:39

They weren't afraid to have

all these main, black

0:04:390:04:43

characters to be at the front.

0:04:430:04:44

Don't freeze.

0:04:440:04:45

I never freeze.

0:04:450:04:46

The revolution must

not be televised.

0:04:460:04:54

One of the weaker points

of the film was the CGI,

0:04:540:04:57

the computer-generated images.

0:04:570:04:57

At points, it did look

like two plastic figurines,

0:04:570:05:00

going at each other and fighting.

0:05:000:05:01

The only weak spot I would say

is they probably need a bit more

0:05:010:05:04

time, I don't feel like I got

to see everything.

0:05:040:05:07

You show off!

0:05:070:05:12

I would give Black Panther

four out of five stars.

0:05:120:05:15

I would give it four

out of five stars.

0:05:150:05:17

Four and a half out of five.

0:05:170:05:19

I will give it five

out of five stars.

0:05:190:05:27

Finally, meet Zeppy.

0:05:330:05:36

He's a flying, bicycle-riding,

water-floating,

0:05:360:05:38

balloon-lifting machine.

0:05:380:05:40

Designed by French man, Stephan

Rusoe, who's hoping to travel

0:05:400:05:44

100 miles over the Mediterranean

Sea later this year.

0:05:440:05:47

The sea needs to be flat,

with wind speeds of less

0:05:470:05:49

than three miles per hour,

so good luck with that!

0:05:490:05:52

That's it from me, we'll be

back just after 1.30pm.

0:05:520:05:54

See you then, bye.
