    Kaetlyn Osmond - Canada's hope

    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 !!

    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

    Thumbs up

    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.

    To tide us over , here are two of Kaetlyn's summer competition videos:

    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    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.
