Hi, guys, I'm Naz

and this is Newsround.

0:00:030:00:06

Here's what's coming up.

0:00:060:00:08

Hi, Newsround.

0:00:080:00:09

I'm Billy Morgan, professional

snowboarder, and I just

0:00:090:00:11

won a bronze medal at

the Winter Olympics.

0:00:110:00:14

We talk to an Olympian

straight off the slopes.

0:00:140:00:17

England's women aim for glory.

0:00:170:00:21

And Jack tells us

his inspiring story.

0:00:210:00:29

First up, medal news for Team GB.

0:00:340:00:36

And overnight there was

a bronze for Great Britain,

0:00:360:00:39

making this our most

successful Winter Games ever!

0:00:390:00:43

Billy Morgan took third place

in the Big Air event in South Korea.

0:00:430:00:46

Take a look.

0:00:460:00:49

I'm super happy, I never came

into this contest thinking I'd

0:00:490:00:52

walk away with a medal.

0:00:520:00:53

I was really happy to get

into the finals so,

0:00:530:00:56

yeah, over the moon

to walk away with a medal.

0:00:560:00:58

So, let's take a look

back at Billy's win.

0:00:580:01:00

The second to last day

of the Winter Olympics

0:01:000:01:02

and Billy Morgan was the hero.

0:01:020:01:06

It was a chance for the big jumpers

to show off their skills

0:01:060:01:10

on their snowboards in the Big Air

event in South Korea.

0:01:100:01:12

A huge 49-metre ramp stands in

front of Billy and medal glory.

0:01:120:01:15

Complicated tricks and a nice clean

landing are what's needed

0:01:150:01:19

to impress the judges.

0:01:190:01:21

He'd only just qualified

for the final but on his

0:01:210:01:25

second jump, he did this.

0:01:250:01:28

COMMENTATOR:

And he holds it up.

0:01:280:01:29

Yes!

0:01:290:01:35

It was huge and he put the nose grab

on it, the hardest grab.

0:01:350:01:38

Yes, Billy!

0:01:380:01:39

That left one last

chance to secure a spot

0:01:390:01:41

in the medal positions.

0:01:410:01:42

Billy Morgan, yes!

0:01:420:01:43

Oh, yes!

0:01:430:01:44

Billy Morgan with a double

frontside triple 14.

0:01:440:01:46

That is massive, that

is absolutely huge.

0:01:460:01:50

85.5.

0:01:500:01:54

Billy Morgan moves into bronze medal

position and it is a very

0:01:540:01:57

long and nervous wait.

0:01:570:01:59

Canada's Max Parrow

was his biggest threat

0:01:590:02:03

for the bronze medal.

0:02:030:02:06

But he had a bit of a nightmare

and crashed out on his final jump.

0:02:060:02:09

So Billy did it!

0:02:090:02:11

An injury last year meant he almost

missed out on the Games.

0:02:110:02:14

But lots of hard work meant that

instead, he helped Team GB come home

0:02:140:02:19

with a fifth medal to make

it their best performance

0:02:190:02:21

at a Winter Olympics ever.

0:02:210:02:24

So, does he have any tips for any

of you guys who fancy

0:02:240:02:29

competing in the Games one day?

0:02:290:02:31

My tips for getting

into snowboarding are find out

0:02:310:02:33

where your local dry slope or snow

dome is and get down there

0:02:330:02:36

and just start having fun, you know?

0:02:360:02:38

Snowboarding's such a fun

sport, there's so much

0:02:380:02:40

you could do with it that

I think everyone should try.

0:02:400:02:43

So if you haven't done it yet,

get down to your local dry slope

0:02:430:02:46

or snow dome and give it a shot.

0:02:460:02:48

I'm sure you'll love it.

0:02:480:02:49

Well done, Billy!

0:02:490:02:50

And staying on the slopes -

a furry intruder stole the headlines

0:02:500:02:53

during the snowboarding

giant slalom competition.

0:02:530:02:55

Check out this brave

squirrel narrowly

0:02:550:02:57

avoiding a collison

with Austrian Daniela Ulbing

0:02:570:02:59

on her run.

0:02:590:03:07

The squirrel seemed to appear

from nowhere at speed and missed

0:03:070:03:10

the snowboarder by centimetres.

0:03:100:03:12

How close was that!

0:03:120:03:15

The squirrel which just fine.

0:03:150:03:17

Next here on Newsround, we love

hearing about your amazing lives,

0:03:170:03:20

so we've travelled the country

to hear some of your

0:03:200:03:22

inspiring stories.

0:03:220:03:23

One of the people we met

was Jack ? watch this.

0:03:230:03:26

I have ADHD, dyspraxia and autism.

0:03:260:03:29

I have problems

communicating with children.

0:03:290:03:31

And making friends.

0:03:310:03:34

Hello.

0:03:340:03:35

My name's Jack.

0:03:350:03:37

I'm ten years old and when I was

little, I was not able to speak.

0:03:370:03:41

And I had speech and

language therapy, but that

0:03:410:03:43

didn't really help me.

0:03:430:03:44

I used to do head-banging

whenever I wanted something.

0:03:440:03:48

I had to wear a red solid helmet.

0:03:480:03:50

It was just so sad for me.

0:03:500:03:53

I just hated it.

0:03:530:03:56

My first music lesson,

a singing teacher was playing

0:03:560:03:59

the piano and then

I started to sing...

0:03:590:04:03

# La-la-la #.

0:04:030:04:04

I was like, oh, my God!

0:04:040:04:05

I can speak!

0:04:050:04:07

But basically, I had to learn

a word by singing it,

0:04:070:04:10

and then speaking it.

0:04:100:04:11

So once I've got a word,

I've got it for basically like life.

0:04:110:04:15

Music really relaxes me,

because when I'm getting

0:04:150:04:17

all stressed, it's like someone's

putting a spell on me that I can,

0:04:170:04:22

like, music makes me so happy.

0:04:220:04:24

If there is any other children

like me who have problems speaking,

0:04:240:04:29

find something that will relax you,

like, for example, drawing,

0:04:290:04:34

or music or anything

that will relax you.

0:04:340:04:36

Now I start speaking, my mum says

that I never stop speaking.

0:04:360:04:43

And I think that's because I need

to make up for all the years

0:04:430:04:46

when I wasn't speaking.

0:04:460:04:54

Jack, you are great.

0:04:540:04:56

England's women are still on course

for a second Grand Slam

0:04:560:04:59

in a row in the Six Nations.

0:04:590:05:00

The Red Roses made it

three wins out of three,

0:05:000:05:03

scoring seven tries

against Scotland.

0:05:030:05:04

This try by Ellie Kildunne secured

England's bonus point before

0:05:040:05:06

half time and it finished 43-8.

0:05:060:05:13

Now, how about this for a big class?

0:05:130:05:16

Thousands of students

in the Phillipines got together

0:05:160:05:18

to try and break a world record

for the largest art lesson.

0:05:180:05:21

200 schools took part.

0:05:210:05:24

The current record is held by India.

0:05:240:05:26

We'll have to wait a little longer

to see if the Phillipines knocked

0:05:260:05:29

them off the top spot.

0:05:290:05:30

Just enough time to tell you to head

to Newsround online,

0:05:300:05:33

where you can find out how likely

we are to get snow next week.

0:05:330:05:36

It's going to be freezing!

0:05:360:05:38

Plus, check out the 15-year-old girl

who became the second youngest

0:05:380:05:41

figure skater ever to win gold

at the Winter Olympics.

0:05:410:05:45

That's it from us.

0:05:450:05:51
