LOL, not if you're spelling your initials!
But now I want some hot cocoa!!
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.
Osmond is in the current group of 5 ladies that can be selected as a GP alternate -- see:
We all want hot Coco.
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 didnt even mind that her freeskate was to Carmen. Im usually not a fan of the Canadian ladies, but I really liked this girl lots of speed and power & big jumps.
Ouch. Why do yo think she's more in that group than any other?
I would like to say
There is a joy in her skating which I love.
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.
Osmond's height on the ISU Bio is 165cm (just under 5'5")
Perhaps with M. Ando out of CoC and TEB, she may get a second GP.
Here's hoping!!!! Right now, she needs all the competitions she can get to give her the experience.
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.
Here are Kaetlyn's summer competition fancam videos also.
Skate Detroit SP (41.69) http://youtu.be/PGpenq0auTQ
Skate Detroit FS (not Final Round) (90.77) http://youtu.be/oogIED3Jrx8
Her performance level has improved so much since Detroit. Maybe getting more comfortable with the program and the elements

Can't wait to watch SCI.
"Nebelhorn champ Osmond steps up her game": http://www.icenetwork.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20121010&content_id=39663386&vkey=ice_news
Nice article and great that her coach Ravi Walia and choreographer Lance Vipond gets some additional coverage. I remember Ravi Walia when he was still competing men's singles and happy for him that he's making it as a coach.
Goodness I hope this talented youngster doesn't get the "Gracie Gold" treatment from the media in terms of hype. Looking forward to her performances at Skate Canada.
Reading the interview and what Osmond, her coach Ravi, and choreographer Lance are saying, it seems they have a plan and are sticking to it. They are away from the "hype" centers in Edmonton. Both Ravi and Lance were Senior competitors. Seems like they are a good match and keeping things calm and in check.
I believe Osmond remains the only Canadian lady qualified for worlds with the minimum TES scores. Lacoste has SCI and CoC. I would assume 4CC. Has any of the Canadian JGP ladies attained the scores require for JW, 4CC, or Worlds?
Yes, all three of them have met the JW minimums and 4CC minimums.
Daleman has met the SP minimum for Worlds at Germany and just missed the FP minimum at both of her events, but she is too young for Worlds or 4CC anyway, as she needed to be 15 by July 1 (and won't be until this coming January). Chartrand met the FP minimum at both of her events, but just missed the SP minimum in Croatia. She could have another chance if she were to attend either Jr. Worlds or 4CC. I don't think Seguin has met either Worlds minimum, but again could have a shot at either Jr. Worlds or 4CC if named to one of those teams. Lacoste has also met the SP minimum, so she has at least two shots to get the FP minimum (3 if named to 4CC)...and of course, would need to beat Osmond to actually get to Worlds.
I believe it is very much a given that Osmond and Lacoste go to 4CC. They seem to be the only two seniors SC are investing in especially when SC gives a host spot to Russia at SCI. Osmond already has TES for worlds and in her first GP. So really no stress. Lacoste requires the TES and I would think want to place ahead of Osmond to get confidence going into Nationals. Should be interesting. Hopefully Osmond/Lacoste can put on a better show than Lacoste/Phaneuf at 4CC.
Lacoste had her mistakes in SLC. I find the scores there inflated (especially when looking at Gracie Gold scoring). Osmond was second out of the gate at Nebelhorn and a relative unknown and held onto 2nd in the short. Same in the freeskate, she was second in the last flight with medal contenders following. So I don't think she had the benefit of score inflation as much as SLC.
New Kaetlyn Osmond article in the Edmonton Journal (I'm cross-posting the link in the Skate Canada previews/articles thread): http://www.edmontonjournal.com/spor...r+sets+sights+Skate+Canada/7440762/story.html
Kaetlyn was impressive in her practice. Good luck to her. Hope she will medal here. Kaetylyn, go
