Gracie Gold, Ashley Wagner & Polina Edmunds Nab Top 10 at Worlds 2014; Japan's Mao Asada Wins Third World Title

Gracie Gold, Ashley Wagner and Polina Edmunds have completed their competition season, grabbing top 10 spots during the 2014 ISU World Figure Skating Championships at Saitama Super Arena on Saturday night (March 29) in Saitama, Japan.

The three Team USA figure skaters maintained their three spots for next year’s competition, placing 5th, 7th, and 8th, respectively.

So, who took home the title for a third time? Japan’s Mao Asada!

“I was able to control myself and I have done what I had to do,” Mao shared with reporters afterward. “I was much more nervous than I was for the short program but the cheering from the fans was with me and made me relax.”

Mao also won the title in 2008 and 2010. Russia’s Yulia Lipnitskaya and Italy’s Carolina Kostner took home the silver and bronze.
