The win made her the first world champion to retain a title since Michelle Kwan did so in 2001, and the Russian did it with a record score of 154.40.
No one came close to ending that run on Friday as she romped to victory by 15.28 points over Canadian Kaetlyn Osmond.
Russian teen Evgenia Medvedeva soared to a second straight women's gold with a record-breaking free skate at the world figure skating championship on Friday, setting herself up as favorite for next year's Olympics. "I'm sitting (at the post-skate news conference) with two guys who have two quads in their short program, and I'm the only guy who was doing one".
Daleman, who was second at the Four Continents for her first major global medal, opened with a triple toe loop-triple toe loop combination before executing a triple Lutz and double Axel. "Overall, I'm happy with my performance and my jumps, and it was one of my best programmes". "I am not prepared to do that", he said.
"I think you just came up with the question of the year", Fernandez said, prompting laughter.
Filipino figure skater Michael Christian Martinez earned himself a spot in the 2018 Winter Olympics after making the cut in the 2017 World Figure Skating Championships in Helsinki, Finland. Sui said: "I had surgery past year and a hard time".
Sui and Han did not let the crash landing derail their gold medal hopes as they capped a year of pain and injury by finally ending their quest for the world title on Thursday.
"Literally the last second I was there, it was 'Oh my God, I see my dad!'", she said.
It was also the first time Canada had won two podium places in the women's competition. "Now I don't feel any pressure, I feel very motivated and the support of the crowd, that they feel my programme as I feel it, they feel what I want to tell with my skating and it's really incredible".
"You'll just have to wait and see", she said.
Japan managed to secure just two women's figure skating slots for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics next year, losing a spot for the first time since the 2006 Torino Olympics. "I have a lot more confidence", said Daleman, who skates out of the Toronto Cricket, Skating and Curling Club in North York and is coached by Canadian skating legend Brian Orser.
Virtue and Moir, who won the 2010 OIympic title, skipped two seasons before returning to competition last fall. Were trying to have a bit of a departure artistically as well, but the real intention behind this comeback was to challenge ourselves. Asked about their partnership of almost 20 years in the post-skate news conference, he answered: "It's pretty cool to have a 20-year partnership and still really enjoy going into the rink every day, and still really love doing it with your partner".
"We knew that we were coming into a very deep and strong field so we needed to raise the level of our skating".
"We always want to try and skate our best and to surprise everybody".
Two-time defending champions Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron of France were second with 76.89.
