    News Canada’s Osmond seeks redemptive season

    While the two-time Canadian champion's main goal this season is to defend her national title, she would also like to make the World team and redeem herself for the 11th place finish she had last year. More...

    I wish her well but she has her work cut out for her. She is still Canada's best shot but with the Americans, Japanaese, Russians, Korpi coming back, the Chinese and upcoming korean lady, Marchesi - she wil find it had to be in the top ten. But she has a wonderful positive attitude and the fact she is upping her jumps says a lot.

    I know there are some major fans of hers in this forum, but I can't say I have ever been impressed by any of her performances I have seen. Can any fans explain what they find special about her? I'm genuinely curious. Would be happy to watch some 'best of' performances, too.

    I loved her SP from the last season. I think she was underscored at Worlds, in the SP. Just my opinion.
    The thing I most like about her is her natural capacity to perform. She looks like a born performer to me.
    She is playful and flirty.

    I also think she was underscored in SP at Worlds. I would love to see her make a strong come back.

    I should add something else, her smile. It looks genuine to me and I like that.
    I hate people smiling all the time - skaters in this case - and many looks fake.

    I would definitely like to see her 'do less'. Although she had fantastic transitions, she always seemed too frenzy by trying to jam-pack ALL that she can do, which made her programs appear hurried and hectic.

    Yes, her smile. She looks like she truly enjoying skating the program, it's make-believe. She is enjoyable to watch. I hope she all the best.

    All the best to Kaetlyn. Whether she performs well or amazing, I still enjoy watching her skate. I can tell she really enjoys herself out on the ice, which is something I appreciate

    So far, she's what I would call a "short program skater." Nancy Kerrigan was a short program skater for most of her career. But really, with the right music, girlfriend just goes out there and PERFORMS. She's got an abundance of natural charisma, particularly with upbeat pieces. I don't think her LPs tend to be the right "fit" for her, at least so far. But she's just plain Fun to watch--which is more than you can say for some skaters who are better jumpers and spinners.

    That program was also technically daring for Osmond. She is still young and has time on her side.

    Totally. She also had an endearing humble attitude and is a natural performer.

    Other skaters look like its a day at the office whereas she wants to impress the audience.

    Aw I was hoping to see her keep her SP from last season, loved it, she's such a great performer, lots of charisma and great energy on ice. Hopefully this season will be injury free and she can skate two clean programs.
