Olympic figure skating favorite Yevgenia Medvedeva , imperfect by her standards, still won her first international competition of the season by a whopping 36.74 points on Saturday.
She distanced Japanese Rika Hongo and countrywoman Yelena Radionova , the only woman to beat Medvedeva in senior international competition in November 2015.
The first of six Grand Prix series events is Rostelecom Cup in Moscow in four weeks, featuring Medvedeva and Radionova.
Medvedeva and Zagitova could go head-to-head at the Grand Prix Final in December and should definitely both be at the Russian Championships later that month.
The figure skating season continues next week with Nebelhorn Trophy in Germany, the final Olympic qualifying competition.
