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.
    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:

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

    I like Osmond - nice lines, huge jumps, lots of energy.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
