A distraught Elise Christie interview

More just in from Elise Christie, who provided us with the moment of the day - just not in the way she would have hoped.

"It's obviously really hard to explain. I've worked so hard for that moment out there and I got knocked over. It's so out of my control and that almost feels worse.

"At least I can go home and think I didn't make any mistakes but it still sucks. I've ended up with fourth place and that's pretty hard to deal with right now.

"I moved into second and I got hit, and I couldn't hold the corner but we were going quite fast on these tiny blades and you can't always hold it.

"When I went down, I knew it was over. I knew they'd only penalise one person."

Winter Olympics: Elise Christie misses out on medal in 500m short-track final

Jo Eley, academy head coach for GB short-track speed skating - whohas worked with Elise Christie- told BBC Radio 5 live:

"I know she said she’s finding it hard to find any positivestoday, I think later in the week she’ll look back and see how well she isskating and feel really confident going into Saturday.

"She has a really good team around her - our performancedirector, psychologist, all our coaches and performance analysts. They will allsupport her and have a plan around what will work best for Elise to get her inthe best place to perform again.

"The first thing is allowing people to be disappointed. Ithink she will spend today and tomorrow being really disappointed and then shewill start looking ahead to the next distance."

'Elise needs a good cry'

Women's 500m

BBC Radio 5 live

Jo Eley, academy head coach for GB short-track speed skating - who has worked with Elise Christie - told BBC Radio 5 live:

"We are really used to dealing with the emotion on one day andresetting for another distance on another day. The nature of our sport enables that because we do multiple distances.

"For Elise, she is the kind of person who needs a good cry toget it out of her system. For her, the worst thing someone could say is‘there’s nothing to cry about’."

PA

"Elise is the kind of person that wants to win so much, she is such a determined person, you actually don’t need to say much to her other than ‘we are racing again on Saturday’. She’ll want that medal.

"I think it is a strength of hers that she can get that emotion out there, it’s a release. For people who find it hard to process the emotion, it lingers a bit longer."

The sort of questions we should be asking

Posted at 13:44 13 Feb

'No room for error'

Women's 500m

Sarah Lindsay

Three-time Olympic short track speed skater on BBC TV

I'm sure Elise Christie will have a good cry and talk things through. There has to be a point where you cut it off and move on.

There is no room for error. She had a couple of little bumps in the 500m but in the long distances she is really, really strong. There is more time to make up for it if you get a knock but in the 500m it's over in an instant.

USA 4-0 OAR

It's not quite the miracle on ice but in the only live sport still happening, the US are 4-0 up over the artists formally known as Russia.

'An hour-long investigation'

Ollie Williams

Commentator on BBC TV

Short track is probably my favourite Olympic sport, but it could really use officials explaining penalties on-screen the way they do in baseball or the NFL. Half the time, figuring out a penalty in an Olympic final requires an hour-long forensic investigation.

'Show her strengths'

Women's 500m

Chemmy Alcott

Four-time Olympic alpine ski racer on BBC TV

Elise Christie is a world champion. There is not much difference. She has to believe it is the same event she has done in the last four years.

The "Olympics" isn't a bad word. She has to go out there and show her strengths because she can do it.

Robbie: This has to be one of the worst Winter Olympics I've watched. Inconsistent judges scoring, inconsistent penalties, contests going ahead in weather conditions that put the athletes at risk. Something about the games this year has lost its magic.

'It's not been a great start'

Team GB chef de mission Mike Hay: "It's a tough sport to watch, we are desperately disappointed and sorry for Elise. She'll bounce back, she's a different athlete to four years ago. This will be tough for her but she will get over it and she has her two favourite events to come.

"The team will rally round her. A lot of British athletes came down from the mountains to cheer her on, she did great. Coming fourth sucks, let's be honest but she went for gold and I admire her for that. Unfortunately it ended in a crash.

"It's not been a great start for the team, we wanted an early medal to give the team confidence. We still have talent in the team to come."

Where have we seen this before?

Kjeld Nuis on winning gold:

"I can't even describe the feeling, it's really weird. I have to calm down just a little. I'm OK, I'm really, really happy. (After my race) I thought OK, this is worth something, but you never know. This is the Olympics."

On what gold means:

"It means a lot. I've worked so, so hard and last year I was on the same track, I was world champion twice in one weekend (1000m, 1500m, World Single Distances Championships). Finally, this is something way special. You can feel my heartbeat, it's crazy."

If you watch Elise Christie's interview, which is being shown again on BBC Two now, the thought of her competing again in a few days is tough.

She will have to be very strong to recover from disappointment like that. But that's what separates Olympians from the rest of us!

You have to prepare for every scenario. You have to be prepared not to win.

'Regroup and refocus'

Christie crashes out

Stewart Laing, Performance Director for Short Track Speed Skating speaking to BBC Sport: "It all happened so quickly. We haven't been able to sit down and watch it fully back yet so I wouldn't want to point fingers. Hugely disappointed but that is the nature of short track. Unfortunately she finishes in that soul-destroying fourth place.

"We have brought our sports psychologist out and we have had this planned just in case. We will regroup and refocus. We will give her time to digest but then help her cope with what's happened.

"We go back to some of the processes we put in place. Crucially Elise is in a much stronger place. She is far more robust than last time. She has actually finished the race so it's different to Sochi. Obviously none of us wanted it to be written this way but we come back on Saturday in her best event.

"We look at her and she has speed and she has talent. You have to give it everything. The 1500 and 1000 are her favourite events so will will sit down and focus on them."

After Felix Loch lost the medal the other night, their golden girl has managed to pull it off.

Natalie Geisenberger is just a class above the rest and you can see why because she makes it look effortless.

As we know, consistency wins medals and by being consistent she has won the best medal of all.

Sarah Lindsay

Elise Christie had absolutely no hopes of staying on her feet. Intentional interference isn't allowed but obviously the referees can't see everything.

They have their cameras so you just have to go with their decision.
