Osmond withdraws from Skate Canada
Osmond is current Canadian women's national champion
Newfoundland native Kaetlyn Osmond has had to withdraw from Skate Canada International, due to a hamstring injury.
The 17-year-old was 5th after Friday's ladies' short program, but on Saturday woke up with pain in her hamstring.
Osmond said she was barely able to put any weight on her leg during the morning practice session, adding that the hamstring injury is a recurring problem.
Sidelined for all of September, Osmond suffered a stress reaction — a precursor to a stress fracture — on the top of her foot.
Osmond and her coach made the decision just last week to compete at Skate Canada.
She is the 2012 Skate Canada champion, and the reigning Canadian national women's champion.
