Figure Skating - German pair Savchenko, Massot set free skate world record

GANGNEUNG, South Korea (Reuters) - German figure skaters Aljona Savchenko and Bruno Massot set a pairs free programme world record of 159.31 points after a stunning skate at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics on Thursday.

The pair collapsed and cried on the ice after a performance that saw them beat the previous record that they had also set at the Grand Prix Final last year by more than two points.
