Alina Zagitova of the Olympic Athletes from Russia smashed the world record to take the lead after the women's short program at Gangneung Ice Arena on Wednesday.

Moments after training partner and two-time world champion Evgenia Medvedeva had broken her own world mark, Zagitova took the ice and topped it by more than a point with a score of 82.92 points.

The 15-year-old Zagitova, winner of the Grand Prix Final in December, skated to "Black Swan" and was absolutely stunning.
