    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.

    She should not get another GP based on the rule, no matter what her results are at skate Canada. I hope GP rules are not changed for the sake of Canada. Katelyn is me skaters to the seniors and should have to obey the same rules as others.

    Man, you are on a roll aren't you!!!

    I like Osmond - nice lines, huge jumps, lots of energy.

    The lines are one thing she could improve on. She has high jumps, good energy and the program has loads of transitions but she could be extending her movements better.

    I saw her live in Oberstdorf and was quite impressed. She really attacked the jumps and the programme. Actually I didn’t even mind that her freeskate was to Carmen. I’m usually not a fan of the Canadian ladies, but I really liked this girl – lots of speed and power & big jumps. :cheer:

    Kaetlyn also got 3 PCS scores over 7 in the LP which is insane. Took Rochette until about the fall of 2008 to get there. KO did it in her first senior international. Yikes.

    Also when Cynthia had her early success she had not yet gone through puberty and growth spurt. Don't know about Wainman.

    Keatlyn has already has her adult body (though she mat yet grow taller) and has obviously retained her jumps through the change. For this reason I'm more hopeful that she will fulfill this early potential. Physically she's not a little kid like Lipnitskaya still is.

    Tracy Wainman was 12 and definitely pre-growth spurt when she was sent to Worlds the first time. So yeah.

    Yes, this was what I thought also. Her build is very mature for her age, so I'm assuming she won't have the issues that other teenage skaters have which is promising. I don't know what her height is, but she appears to be fairly tall.

    Yeah...esp if she's the lone rep for Canada at Worlds in London. Needs competitions under her belt.

    Don't want another Jennifer Robinson/Edmonton/96 sitch which began the death spiral to no ladies entries in Nagano.
