Satoko Miyahara and Kaori Sakamoto started the senior Grand Prix season off with a bang on Sunday, finishing 1-2 at Skate America in Everett, Washington. The two stars illustrated why they were the two women selected to represent Japan at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

Miyahara took home the gold for the second straight year, winning with a total score of 219.71 points, while Sakamoto settled for second again, like last year, with 213.90. The results give both skaters an early leg up on making the Grand Prix Final.
