    Oh dear - having won all nine of their Round Robin matches, the Scottish women lost their semi-final and can now only play for the bronze medal. Evie and the girls must be absolutely gutted!

    Elise Christie has become a triple world champion after victory in the 1000m, 1500m and the overall title at the World Short Track Speed Skating Championships in Rotterdam.

    On Saturday, she became the first British woman to win a world title when she took gold in the 1500m.

    And on Sunday the 26-year-old added a gold in the 1000m, bronze in the 3000m and claimed the overall title.

    Congratulations to Elise. Hope she does as well in the Winter Olympics next year in Korea.

    Well done to Elise for not giving up after her disastrous Winter Olympics in Sochi. I think it's the first time we've had a speed skating champion since Wilf O'Reilly in the 1980s - remember him?

    One hundred days to go until the start of the winter Olympics. I heard, this morning on radio five live, we'll have sixty competitors and hope to do better than last time when we won four medals.

    Really looking forward to this event and hope GB will be successful.

    Hope the political situation in that part of the world does not develop in such a way as to prevent the Winter Games taking place.

    I've just learnt about Russia being banned from next year's winter Olympics.
