Figure skater Cha Jun-hwan won the men's singles title at the International Skating Union Junior Grand Prix in Dresden, Germany on Friday.
Cha earned 143.72 points in the free skate and 76.82 in the short program for a combined score of 220.54. Last month, he set a new world record of 239.47 points to win the men's singles title at an event in Yokohama, Japan.
The latest win secured Cha a berth at the ISU Junior Grand Prix Final in Marseille, France in December. The six top-scoring athletes in each discipline qualify for the final.
Cha is the second Korean male figure skater to reach a Junior Grand Prix Final after Lee June-hyoung, who achieved the feat in the 2014-15 series.
