Yuna Kim leads but the competition in this loaded field is right behind her. Russian Adelina Sotnikova was magnificent and is in second place with a 74.64. Italian Carolina Kostner, the 2012 world champion, was also nearly Kim's equal, finishing in third with 74.12.
Meanwhile, American Gracie Gold, who fought through a near-fall on a combination jump, came in with a sound and satisfying performance and stands in fourth with 68.63.
