It didn't go as planned Thursday for figure skater Polina Edmunds in her World Championships debut. The San Jose teenager heads into Saturday's free skate in 12th place in Saitama, Japan.

Japan's Mao Asada had 78.66 points in the short program to grab the lead ahead of Olympic bronze medalist Carolina Kostner of Italy and Russian teen Yulia Lipnitskaya.

Edmunds, 15, had one early error that dropped her below some skaters she outperformed in Sochi, where she was ninth.

"My Lutz-toe isn't how I wanted it," she told reporters. "I'm happy with the rest of my program."

The Archbishop Mitty High sophomore had 60.59 points. Fellow American Gracie Gold was fifth at 70.31, and Ashley Wagner was seventh at 63.64.
