Hi, I'm Ricky.

0:00:070:00:13

This is Newsround. The top stories

coming up:

0:00:130:00:20

An amazing teenager makes

a comeback on the race track

0:00:200:00:22

We hear what life is like on a farm.

0:00:220:00:27

Plus a homemade sled

building contest in the US

0:00:270:00:34

OK, time for a quick

round-up of some

0:00:360:00:38

of today's sports stories.

0:00:380:00:40

The Winter Olympics are over.

0:00:400:00:43

Yesterday's closing ceremony had

pyrotechnics, puppets,

0:00:430:00:48

and amazing light shows to mark

the end of two weeks of competition.

0:00:480:00:51

It was Team GB's best ever winter

Games with five medals.

0:00:510:00:56

Our athletes are expected

to arrive home later today.

0:00:560:01:00

Manchester City have

won their first trophy under

0:01:000:01:02

manager Pep Guardiola.

0:01:020:01:04

They beat Arsenal 3-0

in the League Cup final at Wembley.

0:01:040:01:08

For Arsenal, the League Cup remains

the only domestic trophy manager

0:01:080:01:10

Arsene Wenger has not won

during his 21 years in charge.

0:01:100:01:16

In the Premier League,

Jesse Lingard headed the winner

0:01:160:01:19

for Manchester United as they beat

Chelsea 2-1 at Old Trafford.

0:01:190:01:22

The win takes United back

to second in the table.

0:01:220:01:25

Chelsea drop to fifth

after Tottenham's 1-0 victory

0:01:250:01:28

at Crystal Palace earlier

in the day.

0:01:280:01:35

Next to the inspiring story

of teenager Billy Monger.

0:01:350:01:38

Despite losing both of his legs

in an accident, he's

0:01:380:01:40

never given up on his dream

of becoming a racing driver.

0:01:400:01:43

Let's hear from Billy.

0:01:430:01:45

Hi.

0:01:450:01:46

I'm Billy Monger and I'm here today

to show you around by car

0:01:460:01:50

that is adapted so I can hopefully

race British F3 this year.

0:01:500:01:57

Last year Billy lost both

of his legs in a crash while racing.

0:01:570:02:00

Now the 18-year-old is back behind

the wheel of a single seater car.

0:02:000:02:03

So how does he do it?

0:02:030:02:05

12 years of my life I spent driving

a certain way and now someone has

0:02:050:02:13

just changed everything I learnt

to drive in a different way.

0:02:130:02:15

I'm getting used to it though.

0:02:150:02:17

Basically the adaptations are that

most of it is on the wheel now.

0:02:170:02:23

The most important pedal

is this side for me,

0:02:230:02:25

the left-hand side of the wheel.

0:02:250:02:26

I've got my fraught pedal.

0:02:260:02:27

That accelerates the car

and allows me to accelerate

0:02:270:02:29

in straight lines and round corners.

0:02:290:02:31

Every lap I do I'm learning

something new about whether it is

0:02:310:02:34

better to control it

a certain way or not.

0:02:340:02:36

I brake with my right prosthetic.

0:02:360:02:37

We've got a shorter one

which gives me more control over it.

0:02:370:02:40

And then on the right-hand side

of the steering wheel

0:02:400:02:43

there are two paddles.

0:02:430:02:44

The top one being up,

the bottom one down.

0:02:440:02:46

And then a hand clutch

just to pull away.

0:02:460:02:48

That's basically the controls that

we've come up with and what is

0:02:480:02:51

working best for me so far.

0:02:510:02:52

To be honest, it's been the most

calm place since my accident,

0:02:520:02:55

being back behind the wheel

of a racing car.

0:02:550:02:58

That's where I've wanted to be

since my accident and to get

0:02:580:03:01

back behind the wheel,

I just feel completely in control

0:03:010:03:04

and just relax when I'm out there.

0:03:040:03:06

It's a bit surreal but I'm sure

when it comes to that first

0:03:060:03:09

racing weekend in April, we'll be

ready for the challenge ahead of us.

0:03:090:03:16

good luck.

0:03:160:03:18

good luck.

0:03:180:03:20

Here on Newsround, we love hearing

about you, so we've travelled

0:03:200:03:22

all over the country so you can tell

us your amazing stories.

0:03:220:03:25

This week it's Edith's turn.

0:03:250:03:26

She explains why she

wants to be a?farmer

0:03:260:03:28

when she grows up.?

0:03:280:03:34

I'm Edith and I'm nine years

old and I live on a farm.

0:03:340:03:37

We have horses, cows,

chickens and we've got 1000 sheep.

0:03:370:03:40

The worst part about

living on a farm would be

0:03:400:03:43

mucking the animals out.

0:03:430:03:46

It is quite hard and it

doesn't smell very nice.

0:03:460:03:50

And it is really far

to get to the shops

0:03:500:03:53

and your friends' houses.

0:03:530:04:00

The best thing about living

on a farm is you have got loads

0:04:000:04:03

of space to play on.

0:04:030:04:05

And there are lots of

animals to play with.

0:04:050:04:07

I have eight other siblings.

0:04:070:04:12

Raven, Ruben, Miles

and then there's me.

0:04:120:04:16

Violet, Sydney, Anis,

Clemmie and Nancy.

0:04:160:04:21

There's always someone to play

with but sometimes your brothers

0:04:210:04:26

and sisters steal one or two

things of yours.

0:04:260:04:31

My main job on the farm

is to feed a calf called Joy.

0:04:310:04:34

She is very excitable.

0:04:340:04:39

We bottle-feed her milk

and we give her hay and cake.

0:04:390:04:43

My mum is my role model

because I want to be

0:04:430:04:46

like her when I am older.

0:04:460:04:48

I want to be a farmer

when I'm older.

0:04:480:04:50

She's a good lass.

0:04:500:04:57

Not long now until Mother's Day.

0:04:570:04:58

It's not this Sunday but next.

0:04:580:05:00

So we want you to head to Newsround

online and tell us your special

0:05:000:05:04

stories about your mum,

grandma, step-mum, aunt

0:05:040:05:06

or any another important

woman in your life.

0:05:060:05:12

And we are following adventurer

Steve back sure who is taking on one

0:05:120:05:15

of the scariest challenges of his

life. He is trying to climb huge

0:05:150:05:19

mountain in Switzerland. We are

following the build-up to his

0:05:190:05:22

adventure at Newsround online. Take

a look at his video diaries.

0:05:220:05:28

And finally parts

of the UK will feel colder

0:05:280:05:30

than the Arctic Circle this week,

which could mean snow.

0:05:300:05:33

But maybe not enough to do this.

0:05:330:05:38

These kids in Iowa in the US

took part in the annual

0:05:380:05:41

home-made sled race.

0:05:410:05:42

Each sled has to be

made out of cardboard.

0:05:420:05:44

Even the local police

took part in the race.

0:05:440:05:48

Never mind the Winter Olympics!

0:05:480:05:52

That is where the competition is

that!

0:05:520:05:56

That's it from the Newsround team.

0:05:560:05:57

Thanks for watching.

0:05:570:05:58
