Tuktamysheva wins gold at European figure skating champs

STOCKHOLM (AP) -- Elizaveta Tuktamysheva won gold at the European Figure Skating Championships, heading a Russian sweep of the medals in the women's event.

Tuktamysheva was second after the short program, but her free skate Saturday to Middle Eastern music featured seven clean triples and a blurringly fast combination spin at the conclusion to push her ahead of compatriot Elena Radionova. Anna Pogorilaya took bronze.

The Russians were way ahead of the rest of the field. Swedish sisters Joshi and Viktoria Helgesson finished fourth and fifth, but more than 20 points behind Pogorilaya.
