BIOGRAPHY

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.

There’s not much this young Scot has left to achieve in the world of short track speed skating, but having left Sochi 2014 empty-handed she has a score to settle with the Olympic Winter Games.

Christie has a habit of making history, doing so in 2015 by becoming the first British skater to win two medals at a World Championships.

And she followed that in 2016 by setting a world record in the 500m, retaining her European overall title and taking 500m, 1,000m and 1,500m crowns.
