I didn't like either of Kaetlyn's costumes--they did nothing for her. The exhibition costume was a lot more flattering to her figure.

The way she is able to express the music already is wonderful.

On the CBC Gala broadcast last night, Tracy Wilson mentioned that Kaetlyn considered switching to ice dance a couple of years ago when her freeskate wasnít going well. :) Not surprising - she certainly can dance!

Count me in among those who are extremely proud of how well Kaetlyn held up in the FP. She definitely looked more nervous than usual during the warm up, but as euterpe pointed out, thatís totally reasonable given the circumstances. TBH, I was happy to see some nerves. It shows that she is old enough to appreciate the importance of what was going on. The fall on the flip WAS scary though. Landed right on her back. Ouch.


Kudos to her parents and coaching team, as they are doing a fantastic job developing, nurturing and supporting this great young talent.

A loving and supportive family, a smart coach who knows his skater well, a gifted choreographer, and a gutsy skater with tons of natural talent and a great work ethic - all the right things are in place for the creation of a star. :) Itís going to be great fun watching her grow and develop.

I really like Osmond. Fierce, fun, good technique, great jumps, good dancer, good versatility. What's not to enjoy!

It would seem that Kaetlyn has acquired a number of adopted moms! :D
I can be her adopted grandmother instead!:D

Do people consider Kaetlyn to be a lock for the Olympics next year or do you think a team of 2 of Daleman, Chartrand, or Lacoste would be possible?

Skate Canada pretty much bases their selections on Nationals. I don't see that Daleman and Chartrand present much of a threat to Kaetlyn. She could beat them on PCS alone.

I can't see ANYONE right now in Canada who is better than Kaetlyn when it comes to ladies.

Kaetlyn has proven herself internationally. They'll send her no matter what. Even if she for some reason has to miss Canadians (say for illness or something), they'll send her. She's top 10 in the world, top 5 (should have been top 2) in the SP.

Any confirmation that Kaetlyn will skate at WTT?

Yes. In a telephone interview with NF CBC after Worlds she mentioned that her next event was WTT. The link is posted on her FB page. Cute piece, her older brother and sister were in the studio while the interview was taking place and contributed some comments about Kaetlyn as a little girl. :)

It was indeed a wonderful placement. I think if she hadn't skated in the last group, we would have seen a better fs and a top five finish. However, it's all a learning experience for her and I'm sure she and her coach will put it to good use for the future.

Skating in the last group in 4th place would have tended to make her feel more secure about staying top 10. NOT skating in the last group would have increased her nerves even more---the pressure would have been greater if she was starting out in 7th place. And she would have had a lower SP score-say around 61.00, a loss of 3.71 points, and she would have had to skate after Gold and Li, both of whom landed 7 triples. I don't think the result would have been any different.
