Speed skater Elise Christie claimed her second victory of the World Cup season with success in China on Saturday.

The 26-year-old Scot posted a time of 43.590 seconds over 500m in Shanghai, where she edged out Korean Choi Min-Jeong by 0.022 of a second.

Christie also won in Calgary five weeks ago and her triumph this weekend means she regains top spot in the overall ranking after three of six events.

She tweeted: "Can't believe it. Gold medal in the World Cup."

The Livingston-born Christie fell in the final of the second World Cup event in Salt Lake City last month.
