Triple world champion Elise Christie will lead a five-strong Great Britain short-track team to next year’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.
Christie will head into her third Games as a strong medal prospect after winning 1000m and 1500m world titles, as well as the overall crown, in Rotterdam earlier this year.
And the 27-year-old will be eager to make up for the series of disqualifications which wrecked her chances of claiming a first Olympic medal in Sochi in 2014.

Christie said: “It’s been a great end to the World Cup season for me and a relief after a tough season with injuries.
“I can’t wait to get back out to Korea and compete again at the stadium in front of the crowds there who are amazing, and I’m really looking forward to being part of Team GB again after four years.”
Christie is joined by Charlotte Gilmartin, who also competed in Sochi and is a former World Cup medallist, as well as debutants Kathryn Thomson, Farrell Treacy and Joshua Cheetham.
