Springs' Bradley wins 1st US title ahead of 2 up-and-comers

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - A few months after plotting out his retirement, Ryan Bradley of the Colorado Springs' Broadmoor Skating Club has won his first title at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

It was hardly a convincing victory for the guy who was lured back by a fan campaign on his Facebook and Twitter accounts, however. A conservative performance left Bradley fourth in the free skate, but his lead from the short program - and some meltdowns from the guys who'd been right behind him - was enough to claim the title.

The 27-year-old finished with 231.90 points, edging out up-and-comers Richard Dornbush and Ross Miner.

Two-time defending champion Jeremy Abbott dropped to fourth.
