Olympic debutant Yuma Kagiyama topped the men's free skate section of the figure skating team competition Sunday at the Beijing Winter Games, earning a personal best 208.94 points to help Japan finish the day in third place.

The 18-year-old Kagiyama became just the third person to ever score above 200 in the free skate, joining back-to-back Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu and U.S. star Nathan Chen in the select group.

He claimed the maximum 10 team points for the segment after Wakaba Higuchi ensured Japan's berth in the five-team final by finishing second in the women's short program earlier in the day at the Capital Indoor Stadium.
