Elise Christie medal hopes

Discussing her medal hopes, world record holder Christie said: “The thing I am most nervous about with the 500m is the start.

“Because I am weak compared to the top girls. On Saturday my start went the best it has in years.

“I have belief in my new start I’ve been doing so that’s built a lot of confidence.

“I’ve got the world record in this event and I’m going to have to get near it to challenge.

“I know people are watching and that’s just really inspiring for me, knowing everyone at home is cheering for me. I just hope I can do the business for them.”
