    I can see why people thought that the double toe in the triple flip double toe was a triple toe. Her jumps are enormous. I hope she gets the triple loop soon.

    Hopefully she can stay consistent and continue on. I wouldn't count on Sotnikova's falls.
    I'm happy for Kaetlyn, she deserved first place

    That's interesting - Amelie Lacoste has been doing Sr. Internationals for a good 3-4 years now and her best ever long program was still only barely over 100, yet Kaetlyn gets 114+ on her first try.

    I think the noticeable distinction is that Osmond has her all her toe jumps already in pretty good shape at 16 while Lacoste has still not yet managed to grasp any sort of consistency on toe jumps.

    See, all my predictions come true. How long have I been saying that somebody in figure skating would do well because other skaters present made errors? I just knew this would happen. I'm even going to go on record as saying that this will happen AGAIN at some point within in the next decade. Mark my word!!!

    This is what we've been waiting for since Vancouver. Finally this season these new kids will make Ladies skating much more interesting. It won't just be the same old skaters we've been watching since about 2003-04. Usually at this point just a year before the Olympics the new girls have established themselves but it took longer this cycle. Now with the Russian girls Gracie and now Kaetlyn it will be much less predictable then the last few years have been.

    Wheeeee... you've got one day left to bet the farm on Kaetlyn. Head on over to vBookies and slam down some :bribe:. Odds are 20/1--- that's a big payout. :kickass:

    Don't get me wrong, Kaetlyn had a fabulous skate and I think she has all the qualities, but let's not get our hopes up too quickly too much. Granted she beat some good skaters but it's only one event and she's still so young. I really hope somehow she can get another Grand Prix and with another good showing at Skate Canada could do that, but I think everyone should just let her go at her own pace and develop into the great skater she should become. I hope and wish her nothing but the best for the future.

    I wouldn't bet the farm on her but it's nice to see Canada starting to have some glimmers of hope after such a long drought. Kaetlyn is definitely one and the other I'd keep an eye on is Gabrielle Daleman. She's on the JGP right now and, with some work, she could be a pretty impressive skater too. I noticed her at JGP Austria:

    Lots of speed, power and energy and really nice spring in her jumps. Good to see Canada finally getting some ladies with some promise...

    I remember posting about Gabrielle Daleman's promise after she won the 2012 Junior national title and then the silver medal at Challenge Cup in her international debut. Daleman's 2nd JGP assignment will be the last one in Chemnitz, Germany. I guess we can retire this thread now? ;) Fixing the Canadian Ladies Program

    You've got to think Ravi Walia is going to get some major credit for developing this great talent in so little time. :respec: Beginning of last season, Kaetlyn was a middle of the pack junior, and this season she looks like a veteran senior.

    I loved her elements, unique choreography (to VERY tired music), and attack! She may not be top of the pile yet, but if you consider how far she’s come in one year, she might become a medal threat.

    In answer to my question is she working on getting the triple loop. Sylvia posted this article in the Kiss and Cry thread. Which states

    She's way more interesting to watch that most of the other up and comers. She really seems to understand her music!

    But the spelling of that name....:yikes:

    There is a proper way to spell Caitlin, and it doesn't involve the letters "K" or "E."

    There is a proper way of spelling Cocoa, and it definitely involves an "A" at the end.

    :p
