Two-time world champion Evgenia Medvedeva retained her lead after the short program despite a fall in the free skate to win the NHK Trophy on Saturday night. The elegant Russian qualified for next month’s Grand Prix Final with the victory.

Medvedeva skated to “Anna Karenina” and hit the ice on the back end of her opening triple flip/triple toe loop combination jump, then two-footed the landing on her next jump (a triple jump), before righting herself and finishing with a total score of 224.39 points.
