    After all the hype of the wonderful Russian women ( and they are wonderful) it was exciting to find that Kaetyln won Nebelhorn today.

    With Canada's women's skating in the doldrums after Joannie retired we really need someone to pin our hopes on for the next couple of years and beyond. I hope that the pressure of expectations doesnt kill her talent as it has done a few others and she retains her ability.

    Congratulations to Kaetlyn!

    Congrats to Kaetlyn, and I hope that she will not fold when the pressure gets too great. I hope she has nerves of steel. She'll need them when the pressure rises.

    That was a big win indeed.

    Good to see Australia's Brooklee Han make the top ten in a strong field, too.

    well that was a surprise but congrats anyways !! :cheer2:

    she will surely carry now Canada's hope and with Rochette and Phanuef retired
    her true test will be at Skate Canada where all the pressure will be on her

    good luck to her
    she has proven she now has the 3-3 arsenals :cool:

    I agree. Wonderful timing. A changing of the guard for Canada. Cynthia retires and Kaetlyn steps up. Nice!

    She didn't beat all the young Russian skaters just Sotnikova. It was a good win for Osmond but still kind of narrow considering the falls of Sotnikova and the single flip from Sotnikova and no 3 jump combo.

    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!

    It won't be too dangerous yet -- not until a certain poster has added his/her endorsement.

    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. :)
