Asada placed above Suzuki by 0.05 at 2012 NHK trophy
2011 ladies worlds was really close
DelSchoes won 2007 Euros by 0.31 points over DomShabs in an all D/S dance podium.
Miki Ando won 2007 Worlds by 0.64, finishing second in both the SP and the LP, and there was a fifth place tie between Nakano and Kostner (advantage: Nakano); in ice dance, Belbin/Agosto won their bronze by 0.24 points over DelSchoes. One year later, Mao Asada's margin of victory at Worlds was also less than a point, while Khokhlova/Novitski beat out Belbin/Agosto for the bronze by 0.26 points. Laura Lepisto's 2010 Worlds bronze was won by 0.20 points over Miki Ando, and only 1.31 points separated the 3-6th place ladies (Phaneuf and Kostner being the other two).
Certainly not one of the closest ever, but it is of note: the logjam of the 5th through 7th place ladies at the Saitama Worlds. Only 1.42 points separated the three.

Has to be frustrating knowing that one tiny mistake could have made a big difference in placement.
