Gabby Daleman and Alaine Chartrand of Canada are both trying triple axels. I've actually seen Alaine's and it's pretty close. She has tried it in two competitions now and fallen. Last weekend the one in the warmup was the best attempt. I wouldn't be surprised if she gets it this year. Don't know anything about Osmond though.
