Speed skating: Christie takes Euro gold No 2
Monday 21 January 2013
Great Britain short-track speed skater Elise Christie has won her second title at the European Championships in Malmo.
Christie, a strong medal hope for team GB at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, also triumphed in the 1500m event on Friday and she was favourite for yesterday's 1000m race. She has finished on the podium for every World Cup race this season.
She won the 1000m in a time of one minute 30.445 seconds, 0.317sec ahead of Italian runner-up Arianna Fontana. Dutch skater Jorien Ter Mors came third.
Fellow Briton Charlotte Gilmartin failed to finish in the quarter-finals.
