    Kaetlyn Osmond withdraws from Rostelecom

    This makes me sad. It seems her injury is worse than they previously thought.

    Good grief I show you the link and you beat me to post it here. Boogerhead!

    Very sad to see this and I'm worried that they aren't being truthful when it comes to how bad the injury is. I hope I'm wrong and that she kicks ice when it counts later this season!

    not surprised at all

    her team is to blame for this rushing her for SC in turn aggravating her injury, they should have known she wasn't going to podium anyways with her injury.
    should have withdrawn earlier at CoR too, now another ladies sub spot is wasted

    It is a shame, but if Kaetlyn isn't fully healthy, it may be the right decision. Everyone (she and we) would be more despondent if she tried to grit through it and wound up missing Sochi.

    Hope to see you at full strength soon, Kaetlyn. We miss your spark and vitality.

    Good lord! They're dropping like flies!!

    Best of luck to her. How long does she have to prepare for Canadian nationals? Is Amelie going to get that one spot to Sochi??

    Oh...didn't they only have one spot at worlds last year?

    I guess b/c Joannie medaled at the last Olympics, they have two this time? Is that correct? Or does every country get at least two? I'm always woefully ignorant of the way spots are determined...

    Is there anyway Joannie Rochette can become eligible and skate for Canada??? LOL It is obvious too late. She would need to do an int'l event and she missed the regionals/sectionals too probably but her skate at the Japan Open would be the best Canada has. Canada has two spots which will go bye bye probably with Kaetlyn. How disappointing.

    KO was in the top ten at last year's worlds- that's why we have two.... which two will be decided (pretty well) at Nationals. We have three spots in the rest of the disciplines.

    She finished better than 10th at 2013 Worlds, which guarantees Canada two spots.

    Oh yeah...duh-doy. I totally forgot about that.

    Well, I guess a better question is if Kaetlyn can't go, who do those two spots go to?

    Ko

    KO is back on the ice at least, preparing for Nationals, so don't write her off yet. Daleman and Lacoste and I imagine Chartrand will be battling for the second spot.

    Not really unexpected, but I would hope they can find a replacement. It sucks when nobody ends up taking their spot, particularly when many skaters would kill for a GP spot.

    This is bad news for Kaetlyn's bid to place well in Sochi. Hopefully she can recover.
