Yuzuru Hanyu returned to the Japan Championships in stirring fashion on Friday night after a four-year absence, seizing the lead after the short program with another sublime performance.

It was a night of spectacular skating at Yoyogi National Gymnasium, and it was only fitting that the two-time Olympic champion emerged on top with a score of 110.72. Shoma Uno, the silver medalist behind Hanyu at the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics, is in second place with 105.21, while junior Shun Sato is third at 82.68.
