Elise Christie was born in Livingston and moved to Nottingham when she was 15 in order to pursue her sporting dream.
After representing Great Britain at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, Christie enjoyed the most successful season ever by a British female short track speed skater in 2012/13 - finishing the campaign ranked top in the 1000m world rankings, with two European gold medals to her name.
There’s not much this young Scot has left to achieve in the world of short track speed skating, but having left Sochi 2014 - her second Games - empty-handed Elise Christie has a score to settle on the Winter Olympic stage.
A ten-time European champion, Christie stormed into the record books once more in March 2017, winning the world titles at 1000m, 1500m and the overall gold, the first British and first European woman to do so.
Following three disqualifications at Sochi 2014, the 12-time World medallist will be confident of improving on her previous Olympic best result of 11th in the 500m at Vancouver 2010.
