Winter Olympics 2018: Short track speed skating star Elise Christie taken to hospital

And so, in Pyeongchang, we brace ourselves for the next drama in Elise Christie's turbulent Olympic career.

Christie, who bounced back from her triple Sochi setback to claim three world titles in the harum scarum sport a year ago, was left wondering, crying and blaming. She will go through a training session on Tuesday morning and if she comes through she will compete.

Christie, a three-time world champion, had also crashed out in her bid for gold in the women's 500m final as she appeared to lose balance and crash into barriers after coming close to another competitor. Team GB last night said Christie had escaped any broken bones despite clattering into the cushioned side of the track but it was unclear if she would be fit to race again. She absolutely wants to and if medically we are happy, it's clear that the decision will be hers to skate. And having tweeted a photo of herself making a Churchillian V for victory pose on Monday, Elise Christie intends to take that advice to the letter.

Donations recorded on the Go Fund Me page showed the fundraiser for coach and security guard Aaron Feis reached $15,554 by 10 p.m. A spokesman for the school, Dennis Lehito, told CNN that Feis was a "kind soul" who undertook an heroic effort to save lives.


"At this point I'd just be filling her with positivity". "This is her last chance at the Games". I'm not sure she could have handled it the same way. "Any time you become a double world champion in between times you've got some resilience". She's got one chance to go and she's desperate.

"If she's able to skate she will, I don't think it's a problem for her mentally". Obviously there's going to be an element of risk if she does make it'.

On Sunday, Christie was retweeting positive messages on social media and correcting perceived criticism from what she called "short-track experts". "I'm looking forward to get out there and see if I can race today". But in this world you're going to get a few haters.

The Scot has been wearing a protective boot and has tweeted a video of her on a static bike with the caption "48 hours to try get this sorted".

It was Sir Winston Churchill who said: "If you're going through hell, keep going".

A spokesperson said: "Following the race Elise Christie was taken to hospital accompanied by the team doctor, team physio and team leader". Hopefully, she is not looking at the crap out there, she is looking at people who mean something to her.
