Christie, who was duly penalised for her part in the collision, appeared to be in pain as she left the Gangneung Ice Arena on a stretcher.

A Team GB statement confirms that Elise Christie was taken to hospital following her crash in the 1,500m short track speed skating semi-final at the Winter Olympics.

Jinyu, knocked off balance by Christie as she strived to get into the top two, was able to get back to her feet relatively quickly.

Team GB chef de mission Mike Hay said: 'It's a bit of a fight against time whether she can make it or not.

Dramatic Decline in Borneo's Orangutan Population as 150000 lost in 16 years
The nests have always been used to infer the sizes of orangutan populations because the animals themselves are so elusive. The team found that habitat loss to plantations and logging accounted for only 10 per cent of the decline.

More concerning was the sight of Christie having to be treated on the ice for a number of minutes, all happening while race officials were determining who had been at fault for the crash. "I've worked so hard for the 500 and it was taken away from me", she said.

Within moments of Christie leaving the ice her Hungarian boyfriend Shaolin Liu was in action. "She was in a great form and I saw her a couple of times and she was in a great place, it's just incredibly unfortunate". "However, I know I'm capable of medalling in it because I'm the world champion at 1,500m too". South Korea's Choi Ming-jeong eventually glided to gold in the final, the 19-year-old showing a blistering turn of pace her adversaries could not live with.

She has one more hope of winning an Olympic medal in the 1,000m next week, if she is fit enough to compete. "It's nice to finish with my best event but I'll be looking to get that medal this weekend too".

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

Former Liverpool player Jan Molby believes that Mohamed Salah is developing into the complete attacking footballer. The Neymar and Kylian Mbappé transfers changed the market, but at that moment it was necessary that we sell.

After finishing fourth, after a crash, in the 500m final Tuesday, she put in an impressive performance in the 1500 quarterfinals, only to then crash out on the final bend of the semis.

"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".

"I've had so much support from back home, which is incredible", she said.
