BORDEAUX, France — Gracie Gold took the lead at the Trophee Bompard on Friday, scoring a personal best 73.32 points in an almost flawless short program to the popular tango song "El Choclo."

Gold improved her previous best by 2.06 points to build a comfortable lead of 7.69 points over Russian Julia Lipnitskaia heading into the free skating.

Wearing an elegant black dress with a red lining, the 20-year-old American landed a triple Lutz-triple toe loop combination at the Meriadeck ice rink.

Gold is looking for another podium finish after her second place at Skate America last month in the seven-event Grand Prix series.

Italian Roberta Rodeghiero was third with 58.81 points while world champion Elizaveta Tuktamysheva scored 56.21 for fifth place.
