Good morning, I'm Hayley

and I'm live with all

0:00:110:00:13

your news this morning.

0:00:130:00:14

First to Pyeongchang in South Korea,

where three British women helped

0:00:140:00:19

deliver Team GB's most successful

day at a Winter Olympics ever!

0:00:190:00:23

Here's what happened.

0:00:230:00:25

Let's start with the skeleton.

0:00:250:00:27

Lizzy Yarnold was in second place

but this amazing final

0:00:270:00:30

run was pretty perfect

and took her straight to the top

0:00:300:00:33

winning her a gold medal.

0:00:330:00:36

Lizzy also won in the last

games in 2014 in Sochi.

0:00:360:00:40

That makes her the first British

woman to successfully defend

0:00:400:00:43

a Winter Olympic title.

0:00:430:00:46

Lizzy's just amazing under pressure.

0:00:460:00:48

Look what she's done.

0:00:480:00:50

She said she would come and do this

for our country and she has.

0:00:500:00:54

Laura Deas was competing in the same

event and she got bronze.

0:00:540:00:57

She was delighted because she

thought she'd come forth.

0:00:570:01:00

For the first time ever,

Great Britain has two

0:01:000:01:02

medal winners on the same podium

at the Winter Games.

0:01:020:01:06

Amazing.

0:01:060:01:09

And one more record for you.

0:01:090:01:10

It was the first time

Great Britain won three

0:01:100:01:12

medals in one day because earlier in

the day, 19-year-old Izzy Atkin won

0:01:120:01:17

bronze in the ski slopestyle.

0:01:170:01:20

I was standing at the bottom after

my third and final run and I know 'd

0:01:200:01:23

skied the best I could.

0:01:230:01:25

I was just waiting

you know, for those,

0:01:250:01:27

what was it, three or four girls

to drop and my heart was racing.

0:01:270:01:30

But, yes, I can't believe it.

0:01:300:01:32

Well done, guys.

0:01:320:01:35

It wasn't all good news

for Team GB though.

0:01:350:01:38

James Woods missed out on a medal

in the men's skiing slopestyle.

0:01:380:01:41

He was in bronze position but ended

up finishing fourth.

0:01:410:01:49

And we told you yesterday

about speed skater Elise Christie,

0:01:530:01:55

she crashed in her 1500 metre

semifinal just days after

0:01:550:01:59

crashing in the 500 metres.

0:01:590:02:03

She was taken to hospital and now

has her right foot in a special

0:02:030:02:06

boot to help it heal.

0:02:060:02:07

But Elise says she's

determined to make the 1000

0:02:070:02:09

metre heats on Tuesday.

0:02:090:02:10

Fingers crossed Elise!

0:02:100:02:14

Many people across the UK felt

an earthquake which shuddered

0:02:140:02:16

across England and Wales yesterday.

0:02:160:02:18

It had a magnitude of 4.4,

which means it was only a small one.

0:02:180:02:22

Nobody was hurt and nothing

was damaged but people reported

0:02:220:02:26

feeling movement in places as far

apart as London,

0:02:260:02:29

Cornwall and Cumbria.

0:02:290:02:35

Finally, football.

0:02:350:02:36

And there was plenty of action

on show in the FA Cup competition.

0:02:360:02:39

Manchester United made it

through to the quarter-finals

0:02:390:02:41

after beating Huddersfield 2-0.

0:02:410:02:43

Romelu Lukaku scored both goals.

0:02:430:02:46

Southampton and Brighton are also

through to the quarter-finals,

0:02:460:02:49

after wins over West Brom

and Coventry, respectively.

0:02:490:02:52

But Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea

will need to play again

0:02:520:02:54

after a goalless draw.

0:02:540:02:56

Thanks for watching.

0:02:560:02:57

I'm back around lunchtime.

0:02:570:02:58

See you then!
