The reigning world silver medallist came up just short in her bid for a fourth national crown at the 2018 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships, winning silver to earn a berth on the Olympic team.
Kaetlyn Osmond, who hails from Marystown, Nfld. and now trains and lives in Edmonton, Alb., exhibits a combination of strength and power in her programs. She will be making her second appearance at the Olympics, four years after helping Canada to a silver medal in the inaugural team event at the Sochi Olympic Winter Games.
At the 2017 world championships, Osmond and fellow Canadian Gabrielle Daleman won silver and bronze, respectively, marking the first time two Canadian women found themselves on the same world championships podium.
Five years after winning gold in her ISU Grand Prix debut at Skate Canada International in 2012, Osmond once again won SCI in 2017 before going on to capture bronze at the ISU Grand Prix Final in December, becoming the first Canadian women’s skater to win a medal at the event since Joannie Rochette during the 2004-05 season. In 2017, she also placed third at the ISU Grand Prix stop in France.
Osmond still has strong ties to her native Marystown, Nfld., where she holds a key to the town and has an arena named after her.
