Elise Christie was aiming for her first Olympic medal. After the heartbreak of the Winter Olympics in Sochi four years ago, and the subsequent fallout, the pressure was truly on for Britain's best hope of a medal. But the fairytale just wasn't meant to be, with fans at home and in South Korea well and truly taken on an emotional rollercoaster.
When you walk into the office or school today, or have a quick scroll through your Twitter timeline, you'll probably hear Elise Christie mentioned quite a bit. The short track speed skater is competing for her first Olympic gold medal today in the 500m, and best of all, she's British. So, if you're yet to catch up on all the buzz around this year's Games, today is probably the best day to get involved. Here are BBC Sport's five reasons why you should make a point of tuning in to the skating star.
Former Westlife star Shane Filan fulfilled the dying wish of a terminally ill fan who launched an online campaign to meet the star - just hours before she passed away. Tragic Emma Clayson, 23, was given just three months to live last November after her skin cancer had spread to her other organs. Her sister Becky, 21, launched an online campaign to help Emma fulfil her dying wish to meet Shane and the appeal went viral.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
