Elise got her first taste of short track speed skating at the age of 12 and quickly took to the sport. By the age of 15 she was invited to join the GB Squad and has made a significant impact on the world stage at both Junior and Senior level already.

Her major achievements to date include representing Team GB at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, gold at the 2008 European Championships as part of the 3000m Relay Team and placing 3rd overall at the 2010 European Championships.

Elise is now looking ahead to Sochi in 2014 and hoping to put her experience to good use.

Originally from Scotland, Elise moved to Nottingham to concentrate full-time on skating at the National Ice Centre with the rest of the squad.
