Kaetlyn Osmond: Skating in Sochi is a dream come true
Kaetlyn Osmond may be a two-time Canadian figure skating champion, but the Marystown native still can't believe she'll be skating for Olympic gold next month.
“I still don’t think it’s fully registered in,” said Osmond to On the Go host Ted Blades Monday.
“I’m just so excited to be able to make the team and to gain a national title, it’s a dream come true.”
Osmond will now be heading to Sochi to compete with the world’s best in hopes of bringing home the gold.
“I am a lot more confident going into the Olympics now knowing that I have one full strong competition under my belt. I’m excited for it,” said Osmond.
Although injuries sidelined her for most of the autumn, they didn't stop Osmond from earning a score of 207.28 during Saturday’s long program, the second highest in the history of the event.
“After the season I was having, of constant injuries, to go out there and skate perfect … I was right where I wanted to be,” said the figure skater.
“I feel the injury every now and then when I’m tired or sore, but it’s only a small thing and I barely notice it.”
