Chen outskates Hanyu in Grand Prix Final   

TURIN, Italy (AP) — American figure skater Nathan Chen won the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final for the third season in a row on Dec. 7, beating Olympic gold medalist Hanyu Yuzuru.

Chen and Hanyu both landed five quadruple jumps in their free skates, but Chen skated his program clean to score a total of 335.30 points, while Hanyu made crucial errors.

Chen, 20, became only the second men's skater to win the Grand Prix Final three times in a row. The only other skater to have done that is Hanyu, who won four straight competitions.

Hanyu dropped points late in the program with just a single axel instead of a triple. The Japanese skater crouched on the ice at the end of his skate and looked exhausted, scoring 291.43.

Skating on his 25th birthday, Hanyu landed five quads in a program for the first time, and paid tribute to Chen, saying the competitiveness between them was driving the sport forward.

"Sometimes somebody says (if) figure skating is a sport or not, and I'm really feeling it's a sport in here," Hanyu said.

In the women's skating, last year's champion Kihira Rika, 17, attempted her first quadruple salchow in competition. She fell, but finished fourth with 216.47 points.
