BORDEAUX, France — Two-time junior world champion Elena Radionova of Russia landed all her jumps in the free skate to win the Trophee Bompard on Saturday and qualify for the Grand Prix Final.

Radionova skated to Sergei Rachmaninov's music to score 136.64 points in the free for a 203.92 total.

Her compatriot Julia Lipnitskaia was second with 185.18 points to also secure a spot at the GP Final.

Lipnitskaia only trailed Radionova by 0.49 point after Friday's short program, but her chances of winning ended when she failed on a triple flip attempt.

Defending champion Ashley Wagner took third with a 177.74 total. The American skater will have to wait until next week's NHK Trophy in Osaka to see whether she qualifies for the GP Final.
