It is as good to see the flying Scot smiling again now, as it was painful to witness her torment in 2014 when, in a tale of misfortune nearly too wretched to believe, the young short track speed skater was disqualified from three separate races - one for a technical infringement and two to debatable judging decisions - leaving her dreams of a medal in ruins.
