OsmondThe newest star of Canadian ladies’ figure skating, Kaetlyn Osmond was almost a complete unknown to the world when she won gold at her first senior ISU Grand Prix event, Skate Canada International, in October 2012. Less than a year and a half later she was an Olympic silver medallist, helping Canada finish second overall in the inaugural team event at Sochi 2014. She also finished 13th in the ladies’ event.

As a junior competitor, Osmond finished sixth at the 2011 Canadian Championships, dropping from third a year earlier. But she had a quick rise upon moving to the senior level. She won the Skate Canada Challenge, the qualifying competition for the 2012 Canadian Championships. At nationals, she won the short program en route to claiming the bronze medal. She was sent to the 2012 World Junior Championships where she finished 10th.

Osmond’s senior international career got off to a stellar start when she won the 2012 Nebelhorn Trophy, defeating future Olympic champion Adelina Sotnikova of Russia. Osmond’s consistency throughout the season made her the gold medal favourite at the 2013 Canadian Championships. She won it handily, beating her closest competitor by more than 37 points. Osmond was Canada’s lone entry at the 2013 World Championships in London, Ontario. Aiming for a top-10 result, she placed a surprising fourth in the short program and ended up eighth overall, earning Canada two Olympic berths for Sochi 2014. Osmond withdrew from both of her Grand Prix events in the fall of 2013 due to a hamstring injury, but returned to win her second national title in January 2014.

PERSONAL

Getting Into Sport: Started skating at age two… Followed her sister Natasha into figure skating and pushed herself to be as good… Leaving The Rock: During the late 1990s the family travelled to Montreal during the summers so that Natasha could train… When Natasha moved to Montreal fulltime, the family followed in 2005…  It was while in Montreal that Kaetlyn’s potential as a skater was realized…  The family then moved to Edmonton because Jeff, who had been an offshore oil worker in the Persian Gulf, was ready to return to Canada fulltime… Odds and Ends: After she won the 2013 Canadian title, Marystown, NL erected signs at the three entrances to the town recognizing it as her home… Enjoys going to movies… Favourite Olympic memory is watching Joannie Rochette win bronze at Vancouver 2010…  Favourite quote: “Never let the feat of striking out keep you from playing the game.” – Babe Ruth…
