It must have seen like a day off for Aleksandra Trusova.

The 17-year-old Quad Queen from Russia was a runaway winner Sunday at Skate America in Las Vegas despite limiting herself to just one free skate quadruple jump, a lutz, because of an injury.

It was the first time Trusova has attempted fewer than three quads at international completion in 11 events dating to the fall of 2018. She did five clean quads in a national event last month.

The third Grand Prix triumph of Trusova’s career came with a modest total (for her) of 232.37 points, more than 15 ahead of compatriot Daria Usacheva, 15, who was making her senior Grand Prix debut.

You Young, 17, of South Korea, a one-time phenom trying to recapture her mojo, took bronze with a free skate full of powerful jumps.

The third Russian, Kseniia Sinitsyna, dropped from third after the short program to fifth.

Trusova’s victory was the eighth straight by a Russian woman in the Grand Prix. They won every event in the Grand Prix season before the pandemic turned the series into domestic competitions last year.

The leading U.S. finisher Sunday, sixth-place Amber Glenn, did a strong free skate that re-established her as a strong contender for one of the three women’s singles places on the 2022 U.S. Olympic team.

Yet even with personal bests by substantial margins in both the free and total (201.02), Glenn was nearly 17 points behind You and nearly 16 behind fourth finisher Kaori Sakamoto of Japan on a day when skater after skater performed well in the free.
