Japan’s Hanyu, Asada bid to make history at GP Final


BARCELONA: Japan’s figure skating superstars Yuzuru Hanyu and Mao Asada will both be bidding to make history in the ISU Grand Prix Final in Barcelona starting on Thursday (Friday in Manila). Olympic champion Hanyu is targeting an unprecedented third straight men’s gold as three-time world champion Asada chases a record fifth women’s crown. Hanyu, 21, arrives in Europe on a high after becoming the first skater to break the mythical 300-point mark at the NHK Trophy in Nagano. Hanyu posted a combined 322.40 points after a free programme which also smashed Canadian Patrick Chan’s previous high.
