Elise Christie: In the women’s short track 500 final, the Brit attempted an inside pass that knocked the top three (of four) skaters ass over teakettle. China’s  Li Jianrou, who was in fourth place at the time, continued on unimpeded to claim the gold. Officials later disqualified Christie, 23, while London tabloids referred to her as a “Scot.”
