At JW, Osmond would be facing both Lipnitskaia (not eligible for Worlds) and Radionova, so it's not a forgone conclusion that Osmond would win gold. Lipnitskaia may not have been thrilled with her GP results, but Julia did score higher at CoC and TEB than Kaetlyn did at SC. JW Ladies judges: AUT, BUL, CRO, FIN, GEO, GRE, NED, ROU, SRB, SVK, SLO.
Gold is not guaranteed for her at 4CC, either. 4CC is in Japan this year, and the Ladies panel includes judges from CHN, TPE, JPN and KOR.

Let's stick to the topic of the thread and the topic of skating - not insulting groups of people/posters. Thanks.
Kaetlyn just won Nationals with a score over 200+!!!
It was posted that her pcs would be lower than Yuna mao and kostner but that's it. Those are the only three people that her pcs would be lower than potentially! She will obviously be 4th. But probably not in their near 70 area just like 60+. One Of them would have to get maybe below 40 on tech? Or 50? To medal. But maybe she will get near 70 pcs too. She is he mist promising young skatEr in the world right now.

However, I'm still impressed by Kaetlyn. She has improved so much...
This was Canadian Nationals. They are notorious for inflating scores. No way does she get 130 points for a skate like her LP last night. Obviously she has potential though.

Champion ? no
but top 5 is achievable if others have meltdown plus she will get Canadian home ground inflation score
she might have a shot with the bronze and pull a Laura Lepsito with her doubles and edge lutzes ?
she would beat Yuna's score which is unlikely to happen, her pcs will be lower than Yuna, Mao, Carolina, Ashley but will get higher pcs than Tuk and Gracie
still at least Rochette now has a successor
She is actually FUN to watch! A breath of fresh air amidst alot of boring free skates.
