NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND: Speed skater Elise Christie, 32, has joined OnlyFans as she is eyeing a comeback at the 2026 Winter Olympics. Advertising the link on her Instagram account for a $12-per-month subscription fee, the professional skater plans to share her X-rated pictures on the platform in an attempt to fund the comeback.
According to The Sun, Christie has already begun promoting her new social media venture. On Wednesday, September 28, 2022, she shared teasing snaps of herself wearing black lingerie in the kitchen, which were shared by her friend and former athlete Sarah Lindsay. One of her first messages on the platform read, “How many subscribers for a topless skating pic?”
Christie has represented Team GB (Great Britain) at three Olympic Games but announced her retirement after she failed to make it to February’s 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics due to an ankle ligament injury sustained in a crash that prevented her from qualifying, as per the outlet. Following which, she told BBC at that time, "I've made a vow I'm going to do everything I can to try to get back out at the next one. It's not going to be easy and it's not something I can say I'll definitely be able to do because I don't have the financial backing to do it at the minute. If I were to try to do it again, I'd still skate for Britain but trying to do it training somewhere else and only focusing on the sprint distances."
The beginning of the financial struggle
In an interview with SunSport in May 2022, Christie said she worked in a pizza parlor and for a family curry business to pay her bills. At that time, she uploaded a picture in her uniform and wrote, "Lesssss go… from daytime athlete to evening pizza maker ;)." In another post, she wrote, "I’ve gotta say I’m very blessed recently. Back to training with a great team of staff, doing my shoot for my book this week, which is so exciting it’s been such a long delayed project." She further added, "Beginning my PT and police force journey. But mostly surprisingly I love my job with the pizza crew. So blessed to be around such an amazing team. I’ve found some new family :)."
Following the announcement of her retirement, Christie, who competed at three Olympic Games but never won a medal, also got in the eSkootr Championship, a new electric scooter racing competition to run worldwide over six rounds between May and October, with the first round starting in London.
