NAGOYA, Japan - World junior figure-skating champion Alina Zagitova on Saturday led a Russian one-two to capture her first Grand Prix Final crown, maintaining a superb performance in her senior debut season.

The Russian teenager's triumph came as the International Olympic Committee on Tuesday banned the country from the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea over a state-orchestrated doping program.

The 15-year-old Zagitova topped the free program session in style after ending second in the previous day's short routine, earning 223.30 points in total ahead of fellow Russian Maria Sotskova, who scored 216.28 points.
