Sorting a list without using .sort()

I want to be able to sort a list without using the sort function.
I have this algorithm down:
make a copy of the list
make an empty result list
LOOP as long as the copylist isn't empty:
find the minimum value in the copylist, remove it
add that minval to the end of the resultlist
return the result list

but I can't seem to put into syntax for for python (3.3)
