Morning,

0:00:110:00:12

Martin here with your

Wednesday morning Newsround.

0:00:120:00:16

First this morning,

the women's football teams

0:00:160:00:18

hoping to make history.

0:00:180:00:20

Manchester City Women

and Chelsea Ladies take on the first

0:00:200:00:23

leg of their quarter-finals

in the Champions League tonight.

0:00:230:00:27

Chelsea travel to France

to face Montpellier,

0:00:270:00:29

while City host Swedish

league champions Linkopings.

0:00:290:00:31

If they can progress,

it would be the first

0:00:310:00:34

time a British club gets

through to the semi-finals.

0:00:340:00:38

Meanwhile, the England men's

team have their sights

0:00:380:00:42

set on the World Cup

in Russia this summer.

0:00:420:00:44

But who will be in goal?

0:00:440:00:46

Four players are hoping to wear

the number one jersey -

0:00:460:00:48

Joe Hart, Jordan Pickford,

Jack Butland and Nick Pope.

0:00:480:00:53

The squad is preparing for two

international friendlies

0:00:530:00:56

against the Netherlands on Friday,

and Italy next Tuesday.

0:00:560:01:00

Joe Hart says he's hungrier

than ever to be the first choice.

0:01:000:01:04

It's obviously going to mean

everything but there are so many

0:01:040:01:07

people who have got the same feeling

as me and we are all fighting

0:01:070:01:12

and pushing in the same direction

to try and be a part of it

0:01:120:01:16

and we'll see, but at the moment,

you've just got to live

0:01:160:01:18

in the present and Holland

is our most important

0:01:180:01:21

game at the moment.

0:01:210:01:22

Staying with the beautiful

game - meet Dan?and DJ.

0:01:220:01:24

Two?friends who love

playing football.

0:01:240:01:26

But that's not all

they have in common.

0:01:260:01:34

They?both have Downs Syndrome,

a genetic condition which can

0:01:340:01:37

affect their learning

and their physical abilities.

0:01:370:01:39

We went along to meet them

at the club Manchester City

0:01:390:01:42

runs for them.

0:01:420:01:43

Meet Dan and DJ.

0:01:430:01:44

My name's Daniel.

0:01:440:01:45

My name's DJ.

0:01:450:01:48

They both love playing football.

0:01:490:01:52

I am a striker.

0:01:530:01:55

I'm in goal.

0:01:550:02:02

Well, it gives Dan and DJ

an opportunity to play football,

0:02:090:02:12

have fun, engage, have

a laugh, meet friends.

0:02:120:02:16

Just be happy.

0:02:160:02:19

Me.

0:02:200:02:25

Me.

0:02:250:02:26

Me.

0:02:260:02:27

Me!

0:02:270:02:31

Head online to the Newsround

website to find out more

0:02:310:02:34

about Down's Syndrome.

0:02:340:02:35

And while you're there,

there are loads more kids

0:02:350:02:38

who want to tell

you about themselves

0:02:380:02:40

so check out their

inspiring stories.

0:02:400:02:41

Now, if you had to attempt a world

record what would you do?

0:02:410:02:48

To be honest, I would try and eat

the most amount of chocolate in one

0:02:480:02:52

minute.

0:02:520:02:52

Well for one man in Australia,

he just wanted to swim.

0:02:520:02:54

But there's something pretty

remarkable about this guy.

0:02:540:02:57

Take your mark, get ready, go.

0:02:570:03:03

This is George.

0:03:030:03:06

He's attempting to set a new world

record at 99 years old.

0:03:060:03:09

Whoa!

0:03:090:03:12

He's attempting to set

the record for the fastest

0:03:120:03:14

50m freestyle swimmer

in the 100-104 age category.

0:03:140:03:18

Although he's 99, he's been allowed

to enter because

0:03:180:03:22

his 100th birthday is next month.

0:03:220:03:25

Come on, Georgie boy.

0:03:280:03:30

So he is past the halfway mark.

0:03:310:03:34

George used to swim a lot

when he was younger,

0:03:340:03:37

but he gave it up and only started

again at age 80.

0:03:370:03:42

Go yersel', Georgie boy!

0:03:420:03:44

Go, Georgie.

0:03:440:03:46

Come on, let's rev him

up, let's go, folks.

0:03:460:03:53

He finished the race

and clocked 56.12 seconds -

0:03:530:03:56

which is 35 seconds faster

than the previous record

0:03:560:03:58

set four years ago.

0:03:580:04:00

Officials now need to

verify the record before

0:04:000:04:02

it is made official.

0:04:020:04:03

So how's he feeling?

0:04:030:04:05

Thank you very much.

0:04:050:04:07

He's exhausted!

0:04:070:04:09

Well done, George,

you absolute legend.

0:04:090:04:17

Good job, but the chocolate wouldn't

have been much effort.

0:04:190:04:22

Finally, when you opened your

curtains this morning,

0:04:220:04:24

did anything look different?

0:04:240:04:25

Believe it or not - it's spring.

0:04:250:04:26

Yesterday was the first official

day, known as spring equinox.

0:04:260:04:30

That's the date when

the amount of daytime we get

0:04:300:04:32

is equal to the amount of night

time we get.

0:04:320:04:35

Equinox happens twice a year, once

in March and again in September,

0:04:350:04:37

which is the autumn equinox.

0:04:370:04:39

So hopefully we can look forward

to feeling a wee bit warmer soon.

0:04:390:04:46

That's all for now but don't

miss Newsround at 8.20,

0:04:460:04:53

We will have Britain's most

successful Winter Paralympian is

0:04:530:04:57
