Kaetlyn Osmond (born December 5, 1995) is a Canadian figure skater. She is the 2012 Skate Canada champion, the 2012 Nebelhorn Trophy champion and a two-time Canadian national champion.

Personal life[edit]

Osmond was born in Marystown, Newfoundland to Jeff and Jackie Osmond.[1] At age seven, she moved to Montreal, Quebec,[2] and at age ten, to Sherwood Park, Alberta where she currently lives. Osmond attends Vimy Ridge Sports Academy.[2][3] She has two elder siblings, Natasha and Gary.[2] In April 2014, Marystown renamed their home rink to Kaetlyn Osmond Arena, and presented her with a symbolic key to the town. They also named a street after her.[4]

Career[edit]

Osmond began skating at age three, following her elder sister Natasha.[2] Due to a lack of ice during the summer in Marystown, they often traveled to Montreal to train.[1] Since the age of ten, Osmond trains at the Ice Palace Figure Skating Club in Edmonton, coached by Ravi Walia with choreography by Lance Vipond.[5][6][7]

In the 2011–12 season, Osmond competed on the senior level for the first time at the Canadian Championships. She was first after the short program, ahead of the defending champion Cynthia Phaneuf, and the 2011 bronze medalist Amelie Lacoste.[8] Osmond won the bronze medal overall. At the 2012 World Junior Championships, Osmond won the preliminary round.[9] She finished 10th overall.

In the 2012–13 season, Osmond won her first international title at 2012 Nebelhorn Trophy.[10][11] She then made her senior Grand Prix debut at the 2012 Skate Canada. She was second in both the short and free program but it was enough to win the competition. Osmond went on to win her first senior national title at the 2013 Canadian Championships.[6] It was the first time in ten years that a ladies' single skater from outside Quebec won the Canadian title.[2] At the 2013 Four Continents, Osmond finished 7th behind American skater Gracie Gold. She placed 8th at the 2013 World Championships.

Osmond sustained a stress reaction in her left ankle in August 2013.[12] In late October, she competed at the 2013 Skate Canada International, placing fifth in the short program, but pulled out before the free skate due to a torn hamstring in her right leg.[13] She also withdrew from the 2013 Rostelecom Cup but returned to competition at the 2014 Skate Canada Challenge. At the 2014 Canadian Championships, she placed first in both segments and repeated as national champion. In February 2014, Osmond represented Canada at the Winter Olympics in Sochi. After skating in both segments of the team event and contributing to Canada's silver medal, she then competed in the individual ladies' singles event and finished 13th.[14] In March, she placed 11th at the 2014 World Championships in Saitama, Japan.
