Elise Christie lived up to all expectations as she claimed the overall title at the British Short-Track Championships.

The Sky Academy Sports Scholar was victorious in the 1500m on Sunday before adding the 500m and 1000m gold medals on Monday to confirm her status as the undisputed British number one.

It was the 23-year-old's fourth national title, although she still has some way to go to beat Sarah Lindsay's record nine consecutive overall wins.

It was the first time Britain's top skaters had been in action since the World Championships in March, where Christie claimed the 500m silver medal and the Scot looked in good form as she prepares to begin another Olympic cycle.

Elsewhere, Jonathan Eley, GB captain at the Winter Olympics earlier this year, took the men's overall title.
