Two-time world champion Evgenia Medvedeva grabbed the lead at the NHK Trophy with a score of 79.99 points in the short program on Friday night. The Russian was her usual sublime self while skating to “Nocturne,” executing element after element nearly flawlessly.

Sochi bronze medalist Carolina Kostner is in second place with 74.57 heading into Saturday’s free skate, while Medvedeva’s compatriot Polina Tsurskaya is third on 70.04.
