Mao Asada Wins World Championship

Japan’s Mao Asada had the 2nd best free skate, but it was good enough to win the Gold at the ladies figure skating championship. Defending olympic champion Kim yu-Na, who had been 7th after the short program, skated the best free skate to win the silver.

It was a disappointing finish for American Mirai Nagasu, who crumbled under the pressure of leading after the free skate and ended up finishing 7th. Rachael Flatt finished 9th. Because of their finishes, the US will only have 2 spots at next year’s World Championships.
