Can't fans of Canadian ladies skating just enjoy this moment please? Success has come few and far between over the years. Osmond may go on to win more international medals, maybe even at the world or Olympic level. She may not. But she beat everyone at Nebelhorn this weekend and I will celebrate that!

:rofl: Let the hype begin! :cheer2: :inavoid:It won't be too dangerous yet -- not until a certain poster has added his/her endorsement.

Hype or not, I hope she gets a second gp fast

I'd love that too but if she gets a second one before Nagasu, I think FSU will implode.

New Canadian champion. Or at least I'd be shocked if she didn't win.

Those 3flips look so easy. Does she not do 3loop yet?

What definitely separates her from other Canadian ladies such as Phaneuf and Lacoste is that she skates with ferocity and attack rather than seemingly meeting the night of her execution on death row. Hopefully, that positive attitude will carry her far. No doubt Canada will hype her; isn't this their first gold medal in senior international ladies since Rochette's gold medal win at 2009 Skate Canada?

Thanks for the links. :)

She's very good... for a Canadian lady. Should be a shoo-in for Canadian champion now that Cynthia's out and all the other Canadian ladies are utterly forgettable deer-in-the-headlights / headcases.

Would love to see her stay consistent (especially in far higher-pressure events than Nebelhorn) and keep growing, especially with respect to power. But everything that is there is a strong foundation for what lies ahead. She will likely not make a huge splash on the world scene this year, but is developing nicely, just in time for next year.

If she does a 3/3 of some sort in the SP and LP (or at least one), she'd have to be in the top ten, right? I mean, ladies are still ladiezzzz.

That performance makes me less irritated that CTV showed her SP ten million times last year.

Her score here would've had her sixth at Worlds last season.

Wow, I hadn't expected Osmond to win Nebelhorn Trophy but good for her that she managed to finish first with a strong LP performance. Wish Kaetlyn many more great results to come, she's really very pleasant to watch.:)

Poor Katelyn, the pressure is going to be insane now. :/

Her jumps are incredible though. You don't see North American skaters with jumps that high very often. :)
