Figure skating – Medvedeva, Fernandez lead in Paris

Figure skating - Medvedeva, Fernandez lead in Paris– World champions Evgenia Medvedeva and Javier Fernandez moved closer to a spot in next month’s ISU Grand Prix of figure skating final as they led the women’s and men’s competitions at the ISU Grand Prix de France. Medvedeva landed all of her jumps cleanly as she bettered her previous short programme best of 76.24 set on her way to victory at Skate Canada last month. The 16-year-old Russian achieved 78.52 points — the second best score ever — for her performance to “River Flows in You” and “Winter” to lead Canada’s Gabrielle Daleman (72.70) and Russia’s Maria Sotskova (68.71).”I am pleased with today’s performance, but this is still not the limit,” warned Medvedeva, the reigning Grand Prix final champion.
