BOSTON (Massachusetts), April 3. /TASS/. Russia’s Evgenia Medvedeva has become the winner of the World Figure Skating Championships in Boston (USA). She scored 223.86 points after a short program and free skating (73.76 +150.10).
Ashley Wagner of the U.S. came second with 215.39 points and Russia’s Anna Pogorilaya - the third (213.69 points).
Medvedeva broke the world record in free skating scoring 150.10 points.
The previous record was established by South Korea’s Kim Yuna who scored 150.06 points at the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, Canada.
Medvedeva has said she showed her best performance at the World Figure Skating Championships in the United States.
"I think it will take some time for me to realize that I won the world championships, because I have not yet realized that I won the European championships," she has told TASS. "I think it will take me quite a while to realize this, especially considering the fact that I won it with a world record. At the moment I only understand that I did my best and presented my free skate to the best advantage."
