Abbott wins 3rd US title with mesmerizing grace
Abbott ends US Figure Skating Championships with a program that makes entire week worthwhile
By The Associated Press

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) ' Jeremy Abbott made the week worthwhile, winning his third title at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships on Sunday with a performance that won't soon be forgotten.

With a seven-point lead after the short program, Abbott only needed to stay on his feet to win the title. Instead, he mesmerized the audience with the kind of quietly elegant program skaters do when they're in the rink by themselves. He landed the only clean quadruple jump of the day, and his artistry surpasses even that of world champion Patrick Chan.

He finished with a total score of 273.58, 32-plus points ahead of Adam Rippon.

Earlier Sunday, Caydee Denney and John Coughlin won their first pairs title together after winning the previous two years with other partners.
