    Osmond tweeted today about being excited for Skate Canada and that she was training hard. Hopefully she's ready.

    Maybe they'll have to send Joannie ;)

    If Gabby could move up to third in the FS she could still make the Grand Prix final.

    She doesn't seem to be a short program skater.

    She popped the second jump of her combination. The rest was fine.

    Only if Oba (currently 2nd) or Sakhanovich (currently 4th) or Turzynbaeva (currently 6th) don't finish in the top 2. It's not impossible but it's a tough ask given that the first two ladies I mentioned are already ahead of Gabrielle & have higher PBs.

    Austman was a nice surprise. Needs to work on her speed & power, but it was a nice debut. The Canadian ladies have improved out of nowhere!

    She has beautiful jumps! Does she have a flip or lutz? I remember a nice 2a-3t at nationals last year.

    Finally got around to watching Dunley's LP and agree that it was pretty rough. Her SP was much better and seemed to hide her weaknesses more. I was surprised to see that she has only one choreographer because the two programs were so different that I thought she must have had a different one for the short.

    Austman had a dominant win in Jr. Ladies at Canadians, so I'm not totally surprised, but she didn't skate well at her one summer competition so I'm pleased to see she's back to form. I agree on the speed and power (and I would also add posture) but I love her sense of style and maturity on the ice. It's hard to believe she's actually younger than Daleman and actually too young to go to the Olympics this year (not that I expect her to challenge for a spot at this point but it does put her age into perspective).

    This deserves to be bumped up to note Alaine Chartrand's seven-triple, 117 point free skate at Octoberfest, as danafan pointed out in the Canadian competitions thread in Kiss and Cry. Results are here.

    Another skater who did very well was Eri Nishimura, with a 148.63-point total score. She's been building through the season, with a good performance at Isabelle Henderson, and this was an improvement on that. I think she's now reached the point where she could challenge for top 5 at Canadians if one of the favourites falters.

    Two skaters I will continue to watch with interest are Rachel Greben and Giouzelin Mutlu. Neither one of them had particularly good skates, but they both were trying multiple triples including the lutz and flip. If the jumps ever come together for them, they will become a factor in Canadian ladies.

    Chartrand really is just working bit-by-bit, and improving steadily with each competition. Yesterday proves she's really in it to make it to Sochi. It's exciting to see all these young girls really go for it and actually want it. I maintain her, Daleman, Seguin, Mallet (Deserves mention after solid Nebelhorn skates) and possibly Lacoste are really going to be fighting for that second spot. I'm really hoping this time it comes down to who skates their absolute best and not who's the least nervous. It could make for the best night of ladies skating in Canada since that magical night in 2004 where I was in the front row and witness to multiple 5-6 triple jump performances at nationals, and Cynthia Phaneuf came out of nowhere to win. Though the top 3 last year were pretty darn good!

    I totally agree with you Kylet3. I even think that there is a chance that Osmond could be beaten for the top spot at Canadians. It all comes down to what happens on the day. A lot depends on who goes clean in the short. It's delicious! And these are Canadian ladies we are talking about!

    Osmond looked solid in practice this morning in Saint John. 3lz, 3f, 3t+3t, 2a+3t. She did a LP run through. Did some jumps but mainly spotting the program. No comparison to Wild Rose competition choreography. Seems like she spent alot of time on fixing it up.

    I think it was one of the first times I saw Lacoste actually smiling on the ice. She seems relaxed. Have to wait for competition time. Really need to fix the hair color.

    Mallet seemed like there may be a few nerves there. Didn't really follow her much. Osmond stole the show for the Canadians.

    I didn't see Veronika and Emelie skate but managed to watch Kaetlyn. Her practice looks good, Claire.

    Daleman skated very well at COS sectionals according to the protocol (I wasn't there)

    http://www.skatecanada-centralontario.com/Irma/Sectionals 2014/swde.pdf

    Per her twitter she's planning to skate at the Challenge in Regina. If I were in charge of Skate Canada I'd assign her to a senior B to get international experience with her senior programs.

    “@gabby_daleman: Thank you @SkateCanadaCOS for everything this weekend. It was a great competition. Can't wait to represent team COS at challenge #teamCOS”

    Rumours swirling around ABNWTNUN sectionals this past weekend is that Kaetlyn has withdrawn from Rostelecom and will compete at challenge....

    My friends back in Ontario went and saw her skate and said she was amazing!!!! :D She had a huge opening 3Lz+3T but then doubled her the planned 3T after the 2A and double her flip, but other than that she was on fire. They said her spins were fast and centered and her choreography was amazing. They think she can give Osmond a real run for the title this year (they saw her short in Saint John).

    42 Senior women are listed in the Challenge SP start order, including Osmond, Daleman, Chartrand, and Mallet (Amélie Lacoste is taking her GP bye), so that means the top 17 finishers at Challenge will advance to Canadians?

    Also in Senior: Alexandra Najarro (Cup of Nice Senior B); 4 other JGP skaters competing Senior are Julianne Séguin, Larkyn Austman, Roxanne Cournoyer, and Marianne Rioux Ouellet.

    4 JGP skaters are competing Junior at Challenge (50 are listed in the SP start order): Julianne Delaurier, Madelyn Dunley, Sandrine Martin, and Kelsey Wong.
