Great Britain's Elise Christie fails to qualify for the final of the 1500m short-track event after crashing out on the last lap of the semi-final.

Great Britain's Elise Christie has failed to qualify for the final of the 1500m short-track event after crashing out on the final lap of the semi-final.

Christie, who also crashed out in the final of the 500m event on Wednesday, tangled with China's Li Jinyu on the final corner as the pair were sent tumbling into the padding.

The 27-year-old, who was tended to after hitting the padding, was removed from the ice on a stretcher and taken to hospital.

Christie is scheduled to compete in 1000m heats on Tuesday.

Earlier on Saturday, Great Britain's Charlotte Gilmartin also failed to qualify for the 1500m event after falling in her semi-final.
