Hi, guys, I'm Naz.

0:00:040:00:05

This is Newsround.

0:00:050:00:06

Coming up in the next few minutes...

0:00:060:00:14

I just won a bronze at the Winter

Olympics.

0:00:150:00:21

We talk to an Olympian

straight off the slopes.

0:00:210:00:23

It's getting colder,

so is snow on the way?

0:00:230:00:25

And Jack tells us

his inspiring story.

0:00:250:00:28

First up, medal news for Team GB.

0:00:360:00:39

And overnight there was a bronze

for Great Britain -

0:00:390:00:41

making this our most

successful Winter Games ever!

0:00:410:00:45

Billy Morgan took third place

in the Big Air event in South Korea.

0:00:450:00:48

Take a look.

0:00:480:00:49

I am super-happy.

0:00:490:00:52

I never came into this competition

thinking I was going to get a medal.

0:00:520:00:55

I was really happy

to get into the final.

0:00:550:00:58

So over the moon to walk

away with a medal.

0:00:580:01:00

So Let's take a look

back at Billy's win.

0:01:000:01:03

So let's take a look

back at Billy's win.

0:01:030:01:05

The second-to-last day

of the Winter Olympics,

0:01:050:01:12

And Billy Morgan was the hero.

0:01:120:01:14

A chance for the big jumpers to show

off their skills in the Big Air

0:01:140:01:18

event in South Korea.

0:01:180:01:19

A huge 49-metre ramp stands in front

of Billy and medal glory.

0:01:190:01:22

Complicated tricks and a nice clean

landing are what's needed

0:01:220:01:24

to impress the judges.

0:01:240:01:25

He'd only just qualified

for the final - but on his

0:01:250:01:28

second jump, he did this.

0:01:280:01:30

COMMENTATOR:

He holds it up.

0:01:300:01:31

Yes!

0:01:310:01:33

It was huge and put the nose grab

on it, the hardest grab.

0:01:330:01:36

Yes, Billy.

0:01:360:01:39

That left one last chance to secure

a spot in the medal positions.

0:01:390:01:42

Billy Morgan, yes.

0:01:420:01:44

Oh, yes!

0:01:440:01:46

Billy Morgan with the double grab

frontside triple 14.

0:01:460:01:48

That is massive, it's huge.

0:01:480:01:51

85.5.

0:01:530:01:55

Billy Morgan moves into

bronze medal position.

0:01:550:01:58

And a very long, nervous wait.

0:01:580:02:01

Canada's Max Parrow was his biggest

threat for the bronze medal.

0:02:020:02:06

But he had a bit of a nightmare

and crashed out on his final jump.

0:02:060:02:10

So Billy did it!

0:02:100:02:12

An injury last year meant he almost

missed out on the Games.

0:02:120:02:16

But lots of hard work meant that

instead, he helped Team GB come home

0:02:160:02:20

with a fifth medal to make

it their best performance

0:02:200:02:23

at a Winter Olympics ever.

0:02:230:02:26

So does he have any tips for any

of you guys who fancy competing

0:02:260:02:29

in the Games one day?

0:02:290:02:32

My tips for getting

into snowboarding are find out

0:02:320:02:34

where your local dry slope

or snow dome is.

0:02:340:02:36

And get down there

and just at having fun.

0:02:360:02:40

And get down there and

just start having fun.

0:02:400:02:42

Snowboarding is such a fun sport.

0:02:420:02:44

There is some much you can do

with it that I think

0:02:440:02:47

everybody should try it.

0:02:470:02:48

If you haven't done it yet,

get down to your local dry slope

0:02:480:02:51

or snow dome and give it a shot.

0:02:510:02:53

I am sure you will love it.

0:02:530:02:54

Get your hats and gloves

on and get wrapped up!

0:02:540:02:57

Why?

0:02:570:02:58

Well, the Beast from

the East is on its way!

0:02:580:03:00

What am I talking about?

0:03:000:03:02

Well, take a look at this...

0:03:020:03:04

The gritters are getting

ready as Britain braces

0:03:040:03:06

itself for a big freeze.

0:03:060:03:07

What weather forecasters

are calling the

0:03:070:03:10

Beast from the East is sweeping

in from Siberia in Russia.

0:03:100:03:14

Basically, there's lots of cold air

hanging around there -

0:03:140:03:17

and easterly winds are blowing it

all over to the UK.

0:03:170:03:21

Weather experts have issued

a cold weather alert

0:03:210:03:23

for the whole of the country.

0:03:230:03:27

It's a level three warning,

which means there's a 99% chance

0:03:270:03:29

of icy conditions or snow

between now and Thursday.

0:03:290:03:35

It's certainly not the first snow

we'll have this winter.

0:03:350:03:43

It's certainly not the first snow

we've had this winter.

0:03:450:03:47

But it could feel chillier

because of the wind.

0:03:470:03:50

Next week, it's supposed to be

the official start of spring -

0:03:500:03:53

but it looks like that's

going to be delayed.

0:03:530:03:55

Don't put away those hats

and gloves just yet!

0:03:550:03:57

Well, for a full weather forecast,

head to Newsround online and we can

0:03:570:04:00

tell you more about that snow.

0:04:000:04:02

Plus our brand new Quiz

of the Week is there.

0:04:020:04:04

If you've got a bit of time

while you are there,

0:04:040:04:07

check that out, too.

0:04:070:04:09

Here on Newsround, we love hearing

about your amazing lives,

0:04:090:04:15

so we've travelled the country

to hear some of your

0:04:150:04:18

inspiring stories.

0:04:180:04:19

One of the people we met was Jack.

0:04:190:04:21

Watch this.

0:04:210:04:24

I have ADHD, dyspraxia and autism.

0:04:240:04:28

I have problems

communicating with children.

0:04:280:04:30

And making friends.

0:04:300:04:34

Hello.

0:04:340:04:34

My name's Jack.

0:04:340:04:37

I'm ten years old and when I was

little, I was not able to speak.

0:04:370:04:41

And I had speech and

language therapy, but that

0:04:410:04:43

didn't really help me.

0:04:430:04:45

I used to do head-banging

whenever I wanted something.

0:04:450:04:48

I had to wear a red solid helmet.

0:04:480:04:51

It was just so sad for me.

0:04:510:04:53

I just hated it.

0:04:530:04:56

My first music lesson,

a singing teacher was playing

0:04:560:05:02

the piano and then I started

to sing "la la la".

0:05:020:05:05

I was like, oh, my God!

0:05:050:05:06

I can speak!

0:05:060:05:08

But basically, I had to learn

a word by singing it,

0:05:080:05:10

and then speaking it.

0:05:100:05:11

So once I've got a word,

I've got it for basically like life.

0:05:110:05:15

Music really relaxes me,

because when I'm getting

0:05:150:05:20

all stressed, it's like someone's

putting a spell on me that I can,

0:05:200:05:23

like, music makes me so happy.

0:05:230:05:26

If there is any other children

like me who have problems speaking,

0:05:260:05:29

find something that will relax you,

like for example drawing,

0:05:290:05:33

or music or anything

that will relax you.

0:05:330:05:39

Now I start speaking,

my mum says I never stop speaking.

0:05:390:05:44

And I think that's because I need

to make up for all the years

0:05:440:05:47

when I wasn't speaking.

0:05:470:05:50

Great stuff, Jack.

0:05:500:05:54

That's it from me.

I'm back in an hour.

0:05:540:05:56

See you then.
