But winning her trust will mean letting down his own walls, and that might change the whole plan...

Description: Resilience is the compellingly honest autobiography of Elise Christie? triple World Champion, ten-time European Champion and former world record holding short track speed skater. In a world where online scrutiny is more intense than ever, Elise's story massively transcends sport. Having been routinely bullied while growing up in Scotland, Christie first felt the full weight of online public opinion following three separate disqualifications at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Death threats followed amid a torrent of online hate whereby she was accused of having caused a rival South Korean medal hopeful to crash. And with that, Christie, aged just 24, retreated into a period of mental health support to assist her through extremely traumatic times on the lead up to the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, where again her dreams fell apart in barely believable circumstances. And yet, she emerged stronger.
