"It was such an incredible feeling," Osmond, from Marystown, said then. "To be able to stand on the podium and see one Canadian flag raised is one thing, but to see two, it feels like you're not alone. Figure skating is such an individual sport, but to have a teammate on the podium with you is unbelievable."
