Elise Christie disqualified from final Winter Olympic event

Limping heavily, Christie lined up a second time and was in last place over the first few laps before settling into her stride to catch and pass Hungarian Andrea Keszler and Poland's Magadelena Warakomska for a second-placed finish.

Christie had fallen immediately after the start, having been kicked on her ankle which was injured in a similar crash on Saturday, although the heat was restarted. "I've trained all my life for this and to me this was everything". But I don't want to be remembered as that girl who was bullied after the Olympics. I have no idea.

"You don't forget being bullied, but I think I'm a strong person now".

"So I'm looking forward to getting out there to race today".

"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. I worked so hard to get back from this injury.

"I promise Britain I will fight from this and I will come back in Beijing and hopefully I can do Britain proud then". I've got ligament damage and putting on a skate isn't the comfiest thing in the world. It wasn't through a lack of capability, it was just short track.

Bronze went to the winners of the "B" final, the Netherlands, who earned their place on the podium after setting a new world record of 4min 03.471sec. "Everyone has been a massive support - most of the people anyway". She has pondered cycling before, perhaps another winter sport, but her immediate reaction here in Pyeongchang was she is already targeting Beijing 2022 for what will be her fourth Games.

Should you see Black Panther?
Asked whether the 31-year-old director will come back for Black Panther 2, Feige told Variety , "I hope so". At this point, though, I care more about the spectacle of the film than I do about the film itself.

"The only reason they gave me the choice is because it's an Olympics".

"I thought "just do what you can do" and I thought "I'll move up" and I moved up. The fact five, six, seven year-olds find me inspiring brings tears to my eyes".

February 13 2014: Christie is disqualified from the 500m final at the Sochi Olympics after tangling with Italy's Arianna Fontana miday through the race.

Elise Christie has been disqualified from the women's 1000m short track speed skating heat at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang.

And at the 2014 Sochi Games, she went home empty-handed after being penalised in all three of her events.

Those thoughts spurred the Nottingham-based racer on again after Sochi, culminating in a remarkable week in Rotterdam last March when she took the 1,000m and 1500m world golds and became the first skater from outside Asia to win the overall women's world championship for 23 years. Subsequent scans reveal no broken bones, leaving open the possibility of her competing in the heats of her final event, the 1000m, on Tuesday.

However, she was subsequently shown a yellow card for blocking an opponent's path and thrown out of the competition in South Korea. She makes the start line but crashes early in her heat.
