Figure skating – Mao makes comeback in Beijing

Figure skating - Mao makes comeback in Beijing– Japan’s three-time world champion Mao Asada will be the centre of attention when she makes her long-awaited comeback to Grand Prix figure skating at this week’s Cup of China in Beijing. The 25-year-old known for her spectacular triple axels will skate her first Grand Prix event in two years after taking a sabbatical following her gold at the 2014 world championships. Japan’s golden girl will look to add to her 14 Grand Prix titles as she takes her first steps towards a likely assault on the 2018 Winter Olympics, after settling for silver in 2010 and coming a disappointing sixth in 2014.
