Reporter gets winter Olympics crash course


With the Winter Olympics about to start this weekend in Canada, Newsbeat and 1Xtra News has been checking out two of the 15 main events.

Reporter Karlene Pinnock tries out a lift during a figure skating session and falls over lots as she goes snowboarding.

Organisers have already had to bring in snow on lorries and helicopters because it's too warm near Vancouver at the moment.
