Christie claims best finish for Brits at season opening World Cup
GREAT Britain's Elise Christie claimed 11th in the 1500m at the season opening Short Track World Cup in Beijing - while China and Korea dominated the medals.
The 19-year-old qualified through the heats and quarter-final with third place finishes, before fourth in the semi-final secured a spot in the Final B.
Christie finished 19th in the 1000m, but failed to qualify from the preliminaries of the 500m - with fellow Brits Alex Whelbourne and Sarah Lindsay suffering the same fate.
The British skaters combined to finish last in the 3000m relay, where Korea captured gold.
But former World Cup gold medallist and Olympic finalist Jon Eley disappointed in the men's 500m and finished 30th overall.
Paul Stanley claimed Great Britain's best individual result with 19th in the same event, while Paul Worth finished 22nd.
Anthony Douglas was the top Brit in the 1000m in 21st, while Tom Iveson claimed 22nd in the 1500m.
And Great Britain finished ninth in the relay, where Korea did the double by claiming men's gold.
