Britain's Elise Christie won silver in the 500 metres at the World Short Track Speed Skating Championships, but admitted she was disappointed to miss out on the gold medal.

Christie, who endured a tough Winter Olympics in Sochi after being disqualified from all three of her events, lost out to South Korean Park Seung-hi.

After suffering heartache in Sochi, Christie expressed her relief to take something from a race. "I'm so happy to finally get a medal," she told BBC Sport.

"I'm a little disappointed not to win gold. I think I hesitated and sat back a bit on that final bend because I kept thinking back to what happened at the Olympics, but I got silver and that's one better than last year so I'm thrilled."
