Kostner takes women's title at Cup of China

Italy's Carolina Kostner wobbled on a couple of landings but held on to beat American Mirai Nagasu for the women's title at the Cup of China on Saturday.
Kostner, who led after Friday's short program, finished with 182.14 total points. Nagasu was second with 173.22.
The Italian, a two-time world bronze medalist, suffered a close loss at Skate America two weeks ago when American Alissa Czisny edged her by 0.13 points for the title.
Fourteen-year-old world junior champion Adelina Sotnikova of Russia finished third after an error-plagued routine.
In the ice dancing, Russians Ekaterina Bobrova and Dmitri Soloviev skated a flawless free dance to take the title with 163.52 points, finishing well ahead of Maia and Alex Shibutani of the United States in second.
