On Tuesday, British speed skater Elise Christie crashed out of the 500-meter short track speed skating event, four years after a similar fall at the last winter games in Sochi. After cruising through the quarter final and semi final stages, Christie was thrown off balance by Dutch rival Yara van Kerkhof. The defeat holds echoes of Christie's defeat four years ago at the Sochi games, however she still has two more chances to earn a medal, with the 1,500 short track on Saturday and the 1,000 meter event next Tuesday.
