Russia's Sofia Prosvirnova won 1000m gold as France's Tifany Huot Marchand took silver.

Christie's medals meant she won overall bronze at the championships in Dordrecht, the Netherlands.

Dutch skater Suzanne Schulting won overall gold with Prosvirnova taking silver.

Ten-time European champion Christie, 28, now has 20 European medals in total.

Elsewhere, Charlotte Bankes won her second snowboard cross Europa Cup race of the weekend in Puy St Vincent, having also won on Saturday.
