Kaetlyn's photo is in Friday's "24 Hours" commuter newspaper. She appears to be practicing a spin.

-Go to the "calendar" tab.
-Select Friday Sept 6th.
-Flip to page 4.
-Clicking on the photo enlarges the page.

...sorry, can't find a way to link directly to the page.


Lately, I noticed there appears to be more recognition of Figure Skating in the Canadian newspapers and TV. ...that would be a good thing. :)

I didn't see this posted anywhere in the thread, so forgive me if this is a duplicate post.

Although I haven't heard anything about this, it appears as though Kaetlyn may have changed her Long Program from Cleopatra to Salomé. Frank Carroll's suggestion perhaps?



Long Program
Part 1: Salome: Tanz Der Sieben Schleier - Dance of the Seven Veils (ND)
Album: Compilation Bomches, Helge & Bohm, Karl-
Performing Artist: Strauss, Richard Von Walter

Part 2: Salome's Dance (feat. Symphony Orchestra of Rome & the Singe (ND)
Album: Compilation
Performing Artist: Miklós Rózsa

Holy Smokes, Salome! *where's a Michelle icon when you need it*

Watch out world, Miss Osmond has it all, beauty/jumps/artistry/spins/et al. And once she puts it all together I predict a podium finish at Worlds, if not the top spot, not to mention the Olympics; never say never, and I'm not talking about the Team Event, wherein she'll walk away with an easy gold medal. Jmho. :)

It's still "Cleopatra" according to the bio.

As long as Kaetlyn works on slowing down and smoothing out her movements, I think she'll be fine. At times she's a little all-over-the-place; if she's skating to Salome she's definitely going to draw comparisons to Michelle...it comes with the territory. Hopefully she's working on really refining her skating and adding that "ooze" effect...that's going to be crucial to pulling off this music. I wish her all the best. No one has pulled off Salome convincingly since Michelle. Most elite skaters don't bother using it for that reason, but I think Kaetlyn may have the charisma to pull it off...

We'll see...

From Kaetlyn's fan page:

"Hi everyone! I just want to let everyone know how things are going....*A month ago, I started to feel pain in my left foot. The MRI results found a "stress reaction" in a bone in my foot. I haven't been able to skate much and have been in an air cast. I've been working with my trainer and have been biking,*swimming, and doing Pilates to keep active. I'm happy to say that my doctor just gave me the news that I can return to the ice. My coach and I have made a plan to get me back on track as soon as possible and I'm so excited to get back on the ice!!!*Thanks for all the nice messages and words of encouragement!

Kaetlyn**"

Was Salome just entered by mistake on SC's site?

New article in which Kaetlyn mentions she thought about withdrawing from Skate Canada: http://www.icenetwork.com/news/2013/10/15/62973252

When asked if she considered withdrawing from Skate Canada, she said, "We were contemplating it."

The injury has forced her to modify the technical elements of her short program. Originally, she had a triple flip-triple toe and a triple Lutz planned; she has changed the combination to a triple toe-triple toe, and the Lutz has been swapped out for a flip.

Does she really still train at the rink that's in a mall? She posted some pics on Twitter. I am amazed :eek: if that is truly where she does most of her practice.
