Japan's Mao Asada, Daisuke Takahashi win Grand Prix Final in Russia
After A Fantastic and Clean Short Program that vaulted him up to the top, Takahashi opened ominously with a fall on his first quad toe. But he recovered with a clutch second quad toe and added five more clean triples. He finished third in the free skate, but not by much, which allowed him to hold on to his lead and win the title.
( Now Takahashi has completed all of the medals he's eligible to winCollapse )
I know most people here probably don't care, but between Yuzu still holding his world breaking SP scores and Dai's clean 4toe3toe (!!!), nobody can shut me up about this. Now for Worlds, and lets hope they don't underscore Akiko again #teamjapan
