Lambiel glides back to the top

Switzerland's Stéphane Lambiel is once again the world's top-ranked male figure skater, moving past France's Brian Joubert.

Lambiel climbed back to number one thanks to his win in the men's competition at the 2007 Grand Prix final in Turin, Italy, where he narrowly beat Japanese rival Daisuke Takahashi.

Joubert failed to qualify for the final after missing a competition in Paris.

The International Skating Union ranking takes into account results over the past two seasons as well as the current one.

The 2005 and 2006 world champion, who has just won his eighth national crown, had been hoping to return to the top spot after finishing third at the world titles earlier this year.
