Scottish short-track speed skater Elise Christie has suffered further Olympic agony in Pyeongchang, following a brutally frustrating trip to Sochi four years ago.
Following disqualification in the 500m, 1000m, and 1500m in Russia (all for different reasons), the 27-year-old remains without an Olympic medal following the first attempt at her three events this time around.
The world champion was in an incredibly talented field, and was unable to get herself into the onto the podium.
Crashing out of the final four years ago, it was a similar tale for Christie this year as she wiped out on the final lap. Crossing the line, Christie was elevated to fourth after a penalty was assessed against Choi Min-jeong.
Italian Arianna Fontana won the gold on a photo-finish.
The Scotswoman delivered a blistering quarter final performance, setting an Olympic record – although this was marginally bettered by Min-jeong just a few minutes later.
Christie is the world champion over the 1000m and 1500m distances, and will surely be looking ahead to the 1000m as her next opportunity to get back on the ice and attempt to deliver Team GB some hardware.
