Elise Christie's Winter Olympics over as she gets disqualified from heat

Elise Christie

Elise Christie gave it everything and that is all we can ask for.

No medals yet from the blades of Elise Christie, but if it's drama you're after, the first diva of short track speed skating is a Bafta victor.

Her hopes had ended when Van Kerkhof caught her grounded hand a lap and a half from the end as the Briton desperately tried to make up ground following a stuttering start that left her in fourth place for most of the race.

Britain's chef de mission, Mike Hay, admitted he was "cautiously optimistic" that she would be passed fit by team doctors, adding: "Certainly, she is very keen to skate". She wanted to give it a go - a case of mind over body, showing mental fortitude. "That is a tiny minority", he said.

"I had so many messages, and some of them have made me quite emotional, all the kids that have used Twitter to contact me, they've told me I'm their inspiration, their hero", she said Tuesday. But in this world you're going to get a few haters.

"You don't become a triple world champion without some resilience". She's got one chance to go and she's desperate. She feels she has taken steps forward. It was all of Christie's Olympic nightmares rolled into one.

Presidents Day: Why should you care?
Retail stores will, for the most part, remain open, with Presidents' Day sales occurring in many shops and online. And libraries , which are always closed on Monday , will close this Saturday in observance of Presidents' Day.

Christie has found the social media environment a troubling space in the past, her equilibrium not surprisingly upset by the death threats issued by Korean trolls during the Sochi games.

However, the Livingston skater revealed at the last minute on Tuesday that she would compete in her heat despite swelling in her right ankle.

"We have all the scans, so we know where we are", he said. I've worked so hard to come back from this injury.

Attention and pressure has been on Christie, 27, in these Winter Olympics. She was also disqualified from her second race for inexplicably moving too far infield at the finish and missing the line. On Tuesday in Gangneung, Great Britain's speed skater did it again.

After Kyle Smith's men's rink secured a comprehensive 10-3 win over Norway, Eve Muirhead's women's squad edged to a 8-6 win over Japan.

GB women's skip Eve Muirhead admitted afterwards that her team had been slightly fortunate.

"She will go through a training session tomorrow". "Both teams played really well".

Maia and Alex Shibutani of the United States took the bronze medal with British pair Penny Coomes and Nick Buckland 11th. Britain's team of Brad Hall and Joel Fearon were twelfth, 0.43 seconds off the medals.

Christie's potential as a double world champion in the 1000m and 1500m and the world record holder at 500m was a factor in the prediction of at least five medals in PyeongChang.

"We did everything we could to turn this around and it wasn't meant to be", she said following the event.

Rowan Cheshire finished seventh in the women's ski halfpipe final won by Cassie Sharpe of Canada.
