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 Winter Olympics, there was no stopping Christie who 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 and with two European gold medals.
Christie was a firm contender to be among the medals at Sochi 2014 but suffered a poor run of luck in all three events she entered.
However, she responded in the face of adversity in 2015 by snaring silvers in both the 500m and 1000m at the World Championships, therefore becoming the first British skater to have ever won two medals at the event. Furthermore she clinched her first overall European title.
