This was also her first event of the 2009-10 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating season. From AP-
PARIS â€” World champion Kim Yu-na of South Korea has captured the Trophee Bompard womenâ€™s event, winning the free skate with a flawless performance to finish ahead of Japanese skaters Mao Asada and Yukari Nakano.
Performing to George Gershwinâ€™s â€œPiano Concerto in F Major,â€ Yu-na received 133.95 points for a total of 210.03 that included Fridayâ€™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.
Kimâ€™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.
