Marystown’s Kaetlyn Osmond has won gold in the national senior figure skating championship.  She calls her first ever championship “unbelievably amazing”.

At just 17, Osmond won the title on with a total of 201.34 point while she skated to the music from Georges Bizet’s Opera Carmen.  This followed her short program which she also won.

For this young girl, the victory was well deserved after placing third in the 2012 Canadian Championships, and then captured gold at the Skate Canada international competition in October.  Her momentum continued through to the senior championship where she put on the skate of a lifetime.

Osmond has indicated the rise to the top was due in part to some major sacrifices and family support.  She left her home of Marystown to attend training in Montreal and Edmonton, spending long days on the ice.

Following her victory, Osmond will be the only femail entry at the world figure skating championships being held in London, Ontario in March.  She says she hopes this will put her in a position to make the Olympic team for a chance to compete in Sochi, Russia in 2014.
