Strong free skates from Yuzuru Hanyu and Shoma Uno kept Japan in the lead after the second day of the World Team Trophy at Yoyogi National Gymnasium on Friday night.

Hanyu, who had a calamitous short program on Thursday which saw him finish seventh, rallied to take the free skate with a tally of 200.49 points by landing four of five quads he attempted. The world champion’s performance to “Hope and Legacy” did not equal the perfection of his free skate at the world championships three weeks ago, but was good enough on this day.
