    The only reason that picture was chosen for the article was to get attention.....it has clearly worked

    Well, if Kaetlyn doesn't mind, why should anyone? It's her crotch.

    Y'know, personally I'm more offended at the painted/dressed up three and four year old they parade all over TV. This? Not offensive. At least it wasn't a jump/spin face, that newspaper editors seem to love for whatever reason.

    I guess gynecologists will have a new gal to cheer for, now that Sasha Cohen's retired.

    well, at least it isn't lacy undies ...
    Joyce Carol Oates will be so disappointed.

    I like her expression the picture, too. She looks like she's having fun.

    Looks like she might have needed a Brazillian. In printing a pic like that one has to give some consideration to the perverts who will get off on it.

    I am fine that some pervy photographer found a way to get skating publicized.

    The most ridiculous "scandal" I have heard of in a long time.

    Crotch shots still have the power to cause quite a stir in the Anglo-Canadian world.

    Women should skate with a book of 18th century poems held between their knees.

    Only if you can bring yourself to unclutch your pearls first .

    I saw that pic too and it definitely wasn't a good choice. She is so young, not a nice way to receive publicity.
    I hope she will won't wear such sheer mondors in the future.

    I'd rather see an action shot like that rather than one mid jump or mid spin when faces are contorted and there may or may not be boogers and spit flying.
    I'm honest, just not always in a nice way

    She was wearing tights. Her body was completely covered...

    Yes, but the tights were see-thru...

    My first thought was, omg she is so cute and has such a joy of skating. Crotch shot controversy??? Meh. Some people clearly haven't watched enough skating if this particular shot is considered obscene!

    Re the photo of Katelyn, I doubt the photographer's intention was to take an unseemly or lascivious photo. It's an action shot and Kaetlyn looks like she's having a blast performing.

    I've seen much worse than that.

    Exactly. I'm glad Kaetlyn doesn't mind. I think it's an awful photo -- for a lot of reasons (and, yeah, the tights are sheer and show the panty and crotch lines that are built into the tights ... really looks tacky). Kaetlyn is adorable. Surely there must have been a better photo to choose than this one.

    O-

    I personally didn't think it was that bad. The caption, however, made me laugh - "Canada's Kaetlyn Osmond, 17, earned an eighth place finish in her first ever competition at the ISU World Figure Skating Championships" - I know it was her first worlds, but it sounded almost like she'd just recently discovered that she had a talent for skating
