Figure skating-Osmond leads after short programme at France grand prix

Show Grid

Madison Chock of Novi and Evan Bates of Ann Arbor won the silver medal in ice dancing in the Internationaux de France Saturday in Grenoble, France, and qualified for next month's Grand Prix final.

Men's gold went to Spain's double world champion Javier Fernández who also led after day one.

Compatriot Maria Sotskova (208.78) took silver, while overnight leader, Canadian Kaetlyn Osmond, had to settle for bronze.

Her "Black Swan" free routine was highlighted by five clean triple jumps, but she fell on a triple loop and singled an Axel. Sotskova cleanly executed a triple lutz-triple toeloop combination but made a two-footed landing on her triple flip.

Skating to Edith Piaf's "Sous le ciel de Paris" and "Milord" at the Internationaux de France in Grenoble, Osmond had the crowd clapping along despite landing awkwardly on her double toeloop and putting her hand on the ice to regain balance after her triple lutz.

Zagitova has now won two Grand Prix events in her debut senior season after she triumphed at the Cup of China in Beijing earlier this month.

Fernandez, after his shaky free skate, saw his almost 14-point lead over Shoma Uno of Japan reduced to 10.39 points. France's Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron, the 2015 and 2016 world champions, took the gold medal (201.98).

Osmond topped the short program standings Friday and was ranked fourth for her free skate.

Chock and Bates had a score of 181.85.

Russia's Alexandra Stepanova and Ivan Bukin were third, with 177.24.

This was the fifth of six Grand Prix series culminating in the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final in Nagoya, Japan, next month — the last competition featuring the world's top skaters before the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

And there was more success for Russian Federation in the pairs free skating, with European champions Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov securing their second Grand Prix gold of the season.

Bronze went to Italy's Nicole Della Monica and Matteo Guarise on 197.59. The last Grand Prix event is Skate America at Lake Placid next week.
