    Here is Osmond's LP at the Skate Canada Challenge recently. She was 5th after the short, but won the long with about 119 points, and ended up winning the whole thing. https://www.facebook.com/KaetlynOsmo...75970219204843

    Kiira Korpi is injured and could not compete at Nebelhorn. The Finnish skater who did compete could not earn a spot for Sochi. Kiira hasn't competed since the GPF last December. I'm not sure if the GP scores from last season count towards the minimum score requirements for 2014 Euros, or even if Kiira is recovered enough to compete at Euros.

    Kostner won't skate at Nationals but will skate at Euros in January.

    Kiira isn't doing her jumps yet with my last knowledge although training 5-6 times /week on ice. She's going back to states in january. The new national winner Juulia Turkkila will go to Euros.

    So Finland has not even one spot for the ladies???? I did not know this. So, it sounds like we will never see her compete again? This is awful, as she really was still growing as an athlete. So little has been said here about her, and that is where I look for news.

    I really missed her this season, and Osmund is so charming. I thank you for that link. Does anyone know what exactly is caro's injury and how serious it is? thank you.

    I have strong believe in Kiira. In her interviews she hasn't said anything close to quitting but to take it slow with properly healing her injury. Hopefully it'll work out great. I also think that her moving to train in the states was a big thing for her mentally and i think it would bring a lot to her skating. Also Finland can't afford not have her in the picture cause they have no other top skater at the moment..
