    During media conference call this morning Kaetlyn has increased her TES for Worlds going with 3F/3T, 3Lz, and 2A. Anyone in the Edmonton area see her in training? Has anyone have kowledge of her doing this combination? From this I would have to assume the injuries are healed.

    I seem to remember talk about it at the end of last season (I thought she was already doing the 3F/3T and would be putting it in this season). Then that the injuries led to backing off to safer technical content.

    Are you saying this is her SP content?

    @LynnRutherford tweeted today:
    Interesting media call with Kaetlyn Osmond @kaetlyn_23 who is determined to have the top 8 finish at worlds, that eluded her in Sochi.

    @kaetlyn_23 Osmond told media she plans 3F/3T, 3LZ in her SP, no changes to FS: "I just have to let it happen the way it does in practice"

    Yes, that was the original plan. She attempted a 3F/3T in her SP at the Wild Rose competition in August.

    Hope it goes well for her!

    Get Kaetlyn to Frank Carroll. So much talent and none of it is being used well. Gracie Gold did not need Frank half as badly as someone like Kaetlyn does.

    I have to agree. Lots of skaters come out of the gate strong in their first international season and are then not be able to maintain consistency, whatever the reason.

    Frank has a way of bringing out the best in skaters, but he's got Gracie now, so probably wouldn't take on Kaetlyn even if she wanted him to.

    Kaetlyn did go to Frank for a month last year. Unfortunately she got injured soon after or while there.

    She was so bendy and sexual at the Games. I think I like Katelyn.

    Great to hear that she will be going for the 3f/3T plus 3Lz in the SP, I wish her well and really hope she can skate to plan. However, I don't quite understand why she is not adding the 3T/3T combo in the long program, since that specific combo is one she has been fairly comfortable doing in the SP for a few seasons and may be a less stressful way to rack up points... Go Kaitlin!

    I am not sure either why she has no 3-3 in the FP. She hasn't shown a 3 Loop in competition. Is there a jump layout she can do to have a 3-3 and 2A-3T in the FP without a 3 Loop?

    I actually think Ravi is doing a great job with Kaetlyn. For one thing, she has very COP-friendly programs, where I'm sure his experience as a Technical Specialist helps. That said, I do think that someone like Frank could help with refinement, which is the one area where she is lacking.

    Not really, unless she wanted one of her jumping passes to be a double flip/lutz/loop. The layout she currently has for the free program maxes out the points she could get without a triple loop with the least risk. There is really nothing to gain by changing it up until she can add the loop.

    If she does a 3/3 and a 2a+3t, she loses the 3t+2t+2t; not having the loop limits her quite a bit for that seventh pass.
    Choices:
    3f+3t, 2a+3t, 3z, 3s, 3f, 2z+2t+2t, 2a
    3f+3t, 2a+3t, 3z, 3s, 3f, 2a+2t+2t, 2z

    Is the risk of the 3/3 worth the watered-down 2nd half?

    I have a feeling Frank would slim her down a few pounds too. Just look at Gracie now. It would help with Kaetlyn's look. She is such a powerful jumper, but I don't think she is technically where she needs to be to become a world medalist. There is no reason why she can't be with her talent. More work with Frank would be nice, but since that's not an option, I hope she may consider someone who will manage her better. Her choreography could be a lot better. As it is she sells it like a professional star, so there is no question what she could do when she is not injured and getting the best consultants.

    How do we think Kaetlyn will do at worlds? I have hopes she may come back a lot stronger.

    Really? I think Gracie's jumps are lower, slower, and less powerful now than when she was with her previous coach. I hope someone is keeping a watchful eye on the quick weight loss under Frank's tutelage............
