Briton Elise Christie is into the final of the Olympic 500m short-track speed skating after finishing second in her semi-final.

The 27-year-old was settled in second during the race, clear of the drama behind her as China’s Chunyu Qu fell.

Christie will aim to win her first Olympic medal and Great Britain’s first medal of the Games when the final gets under way at 12:09 GMT.

Britain have been set a minimum target of five medals from Pyeongchang 2018.
