Resilience is the compellingly honest autobiography of Elise Christie- tripleWorld Champion, ten-time European Champion and former world recordholding short track speed skater.In a world where online scrutiny is more intense than ever, Elise's storymassively transcends sport. Having been routinely bullied for beingunconventional while growing up in Scotland, Christie first felt the fullweight of online public opinion following three separate disqualifications at the2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.Death threats followed amid a torrent of online hate whereby she wasaccused of having caused a rival South Korean medal hopeful to crash. Andwith that, Christie, aged just 24, retreated into a period of mental healthsupport and medication to assist her through extremely traumatic times on thelead up to the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, where again her dreamsfell apart in barely believable circumstances.In December 2018, after months of experimental self-harm as her mentalhealth spiralled out of control, Christie stood at a figurative cliff-edge with arazor blade held against her left wrist. Years of low esteem issues and PTSDtriggered by a variety of events that included a house fire and a deeply personalevent that until now she has never discussed, had led her to a place where shefelt her life just couldn't continue as it was.And yet, she emerged stronger. Instead of personalizing her issues, Christie wentpublic in April 2019 via Instagram - and in doing so became a vital, young femalevoice in the battle against mental health stigma as she approaches her finaldate with destiny at the 2022 Beijing Olympics. Told with her trademark blend ofunfiltered honesty and dark humour, Resilience is her incredible, inspiring story.
