Ellen Breen of West Hills finished second to Russia’s Elena Batalova in the ballet finale Wednesday and won her third consecutive World Cup overall title.

The men’s event was won by France’s Fabrice Becker.

Breen, who is retiring, scored 27.25 points in her final World Cup meet, while Batalova had 27.90.

“I have competed 11 years and I think it’s enough,” said Breen, 31. “But I’d like to stay in the sport and start coaching.”


Breen finished the season with 700 points. Oksana Kushenko of Russia was runner-up with 648.
