PARIS — World champion Kim Yu-na of South Korea has captured the Trophee Bompard women’s event, winning the free skate with a flawless performance to finish ahead of Japanese skaters Mao Asada and Yukari Nakano.FRANCE SKATING BOMPARD TROPHY

Performing to George Gershwin’s “Piano Concerto in F Major,” Yu-na received 133.95 points for a total of 210.03 that included Friday’s short program.

Asada, a former world champion, rose one spot to second overall with 173.99 points. Nakano finished third with 165.70 points.

Kim’s margin of victory is dominating and her 133.95 a new world record for the free skating program. Anything less than Yu-Na winning a Gold medal next February at the Winter Olympics will be looked at as a disappointment.
