Elise Christie’s Winter Olympics nightmare took a new twist on Saturday night as she was carried out of the Gangneung Ice Arena on a stretcher.
Instead of toasting an historic first medal of her career the 27-year-old faced the prospect of a night in hospital after crashing on the final bend of her 1500m semi-final.
Christie tried to cut through to take second place but took out China’s Li Jinyu and slid into the barriers, where she was tended by medics.
To add insult to her injury, as Christie was been wheeled out of the arena to polite applause, the final race verdict on the big screen showed she had been disqualified.
