Junior grand Prix, ladies results: Medvedeva steals the show with two triple-triples

Evgenia Medvedeva did a spectacular free skating featuring seven triples including two triple-triple combinations, a triple flip-triple toe at the beginning and a triple salchow-triple toe as her last jumping pass. She earned 114.35 in the free skate and won overall.

Maria Sotskova had a decent free skate overall, yet she fell in her triple flip-triple toe combo and finished second behind her compatriot.
Karen Chen who was in second after the short program, had few troubles in the free skate and had to give up the silver medal. She started by failing an attempted triple lutz-triple toe. She had to bend very deep with her knee for saving the landing of the triple lutz and couldn't do the triple toe after that. She also popped a double axel in the second half of the program and becauseher competitors didn't leave her room for mistakes, she dropped into third.
