Hanyu breaks Chan’s record at GP Final


TOKYO: Japanese teenager Yuzuru Hanyu broke the world record of three-time world champion Patrick Chan to top the short program at the Grand Prix Final on Thursday, ending the Canadian’s all-conquering run in the Olympic season. After nailing an opening quadruple jump, Hanyu flawlessly landed an triple axel and a triple-triple combination while hitting a maximum level-four in two spins and one step sequence to earn 99.84 points, skating to “Parisian Walkways” by Gary Moore.
