Olympic champion Kim Yu-na, on her return to competition, had gone into Saturday’s free skate with a lead of less than half a point over Ando.

Both put on elegant free skates but neither was technically flawless. Ando stepped out of the first part of a planned double axel-triple toe combination while Kim singled both a double and a triple.

Carolina Kostner of Italy, who had started the day in sixth place, won the bronze.

Ando also was world champion in 2007.
