    What does Osmond have to do to reach the podium at the Olympic and Worlds in future

    Osmond had a very impressive breakout season this year, going from the 8th ranked junior skater in the World to the 8th ranked senior skater. What does she now have to do to reach the top 3 at Worlds and Olympics in the coming years, maybe even next year if at all possible.

    She needs to be able to skate a clean 7-triple program. This season, she planned 6 triples and landed only 4 at 4CC, Worlds and WTT.

    Work on her jumps. Clean up the choreography. And BAM I'm telling you she will medal at the '18 Olympics and possible '15 worlds.

    She needs to be given the time and space to develop into a contender. The talent is there and if the work ethic is there then it will all come together. If Skate Canada starts pushing her too soon as a medal contender, and fans start setting up high expectations way too soon then the pressure will be too much for her. Give her time to get adjusted to the senior ranks and to improve where she needs to. She will be one of the top ladies soon enough

    Same with Gracie, too. And in some cases, the Russians girls as well.

    There's no question about her work ethic. She works extremely hard.
    It will come together for her, she just needs time and patience.
