Kaetlyn Osmond – Then
Kaetlyn Osmond – Now
Kaetlyn Osmond was born in Marystown, Newfoundland and Labrador, in 1995 and began skating at age two. Since age 10, Osmond has trained at the Ice Palace Figure Skating Club in Edmonton, coached by Ravi Walia with choreography by Lance Vipond.
In 2007, Kaetyln competed at Canada Winter Games in the Yukon for Newfoundland and Labrador and won a bronze medal in pre-novice singles female. In the 2011–12 season, Kaetlyn competed on the senior level for the first time at the Canadian Championships where she won the bronze medal overall. At the 2012 Junior Worlds, Osmond won the preliminary round and finished 10th overall.
In the 2012–13 season, Osmond won her first international title at the 2012 Nebelhorn Trophy competition. She then made her senior Grand Prix debut at the 2012 Skate Canada event, where she captured the gold medal. Kaetlyn went on to win her first senior national title at the 2013 Canadian Championships. That same year she placed eighth at the World Championships.
In 2013–14, Osmond began her season at the 2013 Skate Canada competition where she competed in the short program, but pulled out because of a hamstring injury. However, she went on to compete at the 2014 Skate Canada Challenge in order to gain points and competition experience for the season. She placed fifth in the short program and first in the long program, winning the event overall.
