But many fans of Choi took exception to Boutin being promoted after many adjudged her to have made illegal contact with her competitors in both the semi-final and the final, incidents which went unpunished.

British short-track skater Elise Christie, fourth after crashing in yesterday's final, also received death threats following a collision with South Korea's Park Seung-hi at Sochi 2014.
