Team Great Britain speed skater Elise Christie has turned to OnlyFans in a bid to fund her dream of winning a medal at the 2026 Winter Olympics.
The three-time world champion missed the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing after suffering an ankle ligament injury that prevented her from qualifying.
She had initially chosen to retire as a result of the injury, however, in a BBC Sport TV interview just a few months later she made a vow that she would do everything she could to get to the next Games.
She did note, however, that she would have to self-fund her bid to get to Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo in 2026.
Christie added: “But we're going to have to be going abroad, realistically, and then self-funding and figuring all that out.
“So I need some time to do that. But I'm going to start getting back into shape. I've had three months of eating cookies."
And it looks like OnlyFans is part of that plan.
She is selling a subscription for £11 a month (A$19) and is planning on sharing the pictures on the social platform in order to raise funds for her 2026 bid.
She had already begun promoting her new venture.
One of her first messages on the platform, according to The Sun, read: “How many subscribers for a topless skating pic?”
Christie has competed at the 2010, 2014, and 2018 Winter Olympics, however, has failed to yet take home a medal.
She believes four years of training in countries such as Kazahkstan and the United States will help her accomplish her dream.
She told the BBC: “I wanted to get that Olympic medal but it wasn’t meant to be this time. I knew I wasn’t going to be at a good enough standard.
“I feel like I could still medal in four years. I need to figure out how. I have needed this break. Watching these Beijing Games has sparked something inside of me.
“People on Twitter have said it is boring without me, which is really sweet.
“I will still skate for Britain but train somewhere else and focus only on the sprint distances. It won’t be easy. I don’t have the back for it right now.”
The Liverpool-born skater has used the last few months to instead fuel a new passion for competing in E-scooter competitions.
She took part in the inaugural eSkootr World Championship back in May when it was held in London.
