Crack speed-skater Elise Christie (pictured) has become the latest Hucknall sportsperson to appear on the TV show, ‘A Question Of Sport’.

Christie (24) lined up alongside England cricketer Joe Root on Matt Dawson’s team in an episode broadcast on BBC last week.

It was her second appearance on the cult show, while athlete Andy Turner has been a guest at least three times.

Flying Scot Christie, who lives in Hucknall with fellow British speed-skater, boyfriend Jack Whelbourne, has had a year to remember,

She won a gold medal at the European Championships and a silver at the world championships. However, she suffered wretched luck at the Winter Olympics where she was disqualified in all three of her events.
