Team GB's Elise Christie crashes out AGAIN as Winter Olympics star rushed to hospital

But there was crushing disappointment once again for Elise Christie, who crashed in the semifinal of the 1,500m in short-track speed skating and was led from the rink on a stretcher.

Great Britain's Elise Christie's Winter Olympic hoodoo continued after the Briton crashed out on the final corner of her 1500m short-track semi-final after tangling with China's Li Jinyu, subsequently being penalised for infringement as the Chinese was advanced.

Team-mate Charlotte Gilmartin also slid out of her semi-final and will play a vital role in picking up Christie, who will be a bridesmaid at her wedding later this year, in the days ahead.

"It's a bit of a fight against time whether she can make it or not", said British Olympic Association chef de mission and team leader Mike Hay.

Christie is still slated to skate in the 1000m competition, but her participation in that event may be in doubt.

"I'm not too bothered about medals right now".

"Right now it's about Elise's health".

Having been taken to hospital, the initial prognosis in unknown but it is suspected that the Brit sustained a cut to her leg or foot, with now a race against time to line up in the 1000m heats.

Thankfully for the Scottish athlete, it has been announced that the 27-year-old has not broken any bones, according to the BBC.

"This is looking forward, she is out of the 1500m, she obviously crashed out of the 500m last week as well".

Liu suffered his own crash in the men's 1000m metres final, which was won by Canada's Samuel Girard, with American John Henry-Kruger taking second, and South Koreas Seo Yira taking bronze.

Here's the moment a desperately unlucky Christie was sent crashing for the second time at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

"You want to hit the barrier with the biggest part of your body but if you fall on the outside you can end up in awkward position which is when injuries occur because you hit it at such speed".
