what's new with you. Right now,
here's New... BOTH:
It does work.
Hi, Martin here with your
At this year's Winter
games in South Korea,
Menna Fitzpatrick and her guide
Jen Kehoe became the most succesful
British Winter Paralympians ever.
They got a gold, two
silvers and a bronze.
And they have brought their medals
to visitors here.
First, let's see them in action
on the slopes in Pyeongchang.
Menna Fitzpatrick, she's giving
herself every opportunity
for a piece of history
here for Great Britain.
Still driving, still turning.
Care here on this
last tricky section.
Watch the clock.
She's in front by
a second and a half.
So too is Menna Fitzpatrick.
That was an absolutely brilliant
second half of the run.
Great Britain will hit
their target of seven medals.
Jen, Menna, congratulations, great
result. Can we just see your medals
They look really big.
They are really heavy.
because you have only got four! How
does it feel to be Britain's most
successful winter Paralympian is?
definitely hasn't sunk in yet, we
came home two days ago and it has
been nonstop, feet haven't touched
A bit of a whirlwind.
Can we talk about the performance
that won the gold medal, what was so
different about that performance on
the day and made it a gold medal
We just went
out there to have fun and do what we
do best, which is skee.
And we worked really well as a team,
the communication was really
We just worked as one.
Brilliant. Menna, can I ask you a
quick question, for anyone watching
your discipline, it is exhilarating
and exciting and also, that someone
like me, quite scary. You have a
visual impairment, how do you do it?
Jen wears a bright orange jacket in
front of her so I am basically
following the jacket and the outline
of Jen and trying to stick in her
line, when she is telling me what to
turn, what the slope is doing, what
the snow is doing, trying to paint a
picture in my head.
You must have to
have quite a good relationship, you
must be good at skiing, Jen.
learned when I was nine, living in
schizo and and I learned to ski race
in the British Army and that is how
I got into guiding -- living in
Switzerland. And we trained really
hard together, you need to work
together as a team and some of the
best teams in the world have worked
together for a really long time and
get to know each other.
Does it feel
different now, Menna, that you have
the gold medal?
It does, I still
can't quite believe it. I walked
through Euston station this morning
and the girl said, "Oh, my God, it's
from the TV!"
How does that feel?
feels a bit strange and a bit
embarrassing, her mum was going...
Because she was shouting quite
loudly. But it is a very surreal
Thank you very much
coming in, it has been an absolute
pleasure. Can we just see the medals
again? I think everybody would love
to see them there is the goal. Guys,
that is perfect, well done,
From two amazing sports people to
another and if you had to attempt a
world record, what would you do? I
would need lots of chocolate within
a minute but one man in Australia
just wanted to swim, but there is
something pretty remarkable about
Take your mark, get ready, go.
This is George.
He's attempting to set a new world
record at 99 years old.
He's attempting to set
the record for the fastest
50m freestyle swimmer
in the 100-104 age category.
Although he's 99, he's been allowed
to enter because
his 100th birthday is next month.
Come on, Georgie boy.
So he is past the halfway mark.
George used to swim a lot
when he was younger,
but he gave it up and only started
again at the age of 80.
Go yersel', Georgie boy!
Come on, Georgie.
Come on, let's rev him
up, let's go, folks.
He finished the race
and clocked 56.12 seconds -
which is 35 seconds faster
than the previous record
set four years ago.
Officials now need to
verify the record before
it is made official.
So how's he feeling?
Thank you very much.
Well done, George,
you absolute legend.
Finally - a big day
for this little guy.
The first polar bear to be born
in the UK in 25 years will make it's
first public appearance today.
The cute cub lives at
the Royal Zoological Society's
Highland Wildlife Park in Scotland.
After spending the first four months
of its life in private with its mum,
the time has come for it to venture
out of the den and explore.
That's all for now from Newsround.
We are back at 4:20pm. Have a good
day at school.
