    When Ravi Walia began coaching 10 year old Kaetlyn Osmond at the Ice Palace 7 years ago, he didn't know their partnership would eventually lead to a senior national championship and Olympic dreams.

    Osmond took first place at the Canadian Tire National Figure Skating Championships over the weekend and has now returned the city of champions a champion in her own right.

    Walia told 630 CHED news about the whirlwind they have experienced since the win, “Yeah, it’s been a really exciting time for her since she won on Saturday. It's been a lot of excitement. Everyone has been very supportive and congratulatory."

    Next up for Osmond is "The Four Continents" competition in Japan. She will then be the only female skater representing Canada at the world championships in London, Ontario in March.

    Once this season wraps Walia says they will discuss the plans to get to Sochi in 2014. (tk)

    I find it kinda annoying that Canadian Press and other national news outlets keep referring to Kaetlyn Osmond as being from Newfoundland even though she was only born there, and that she and her family have lived in metro Edmonton for quite a while. They make it sound like she's only here to train.

    So that's where she's from.

    Some people have their knickers tied in knots over the front page picture of Kaetlyn Osmond in Monday's Globe and Mail:

    What's the big deal? It's only a sports photo.

    Another Skate Canada gold win, more fake news on where she lives by the Canadian Press
    http://www.cbc.ca/sports/olympics/wi...rday-1.4377025

    It took five backbreaking years for Kaetlyn Osmond to climb back on top of the podium at Skate Canada International. But her perseverance has paid off.
    The 21-year-old from Marystown, N.L., won the women's singles title Saturday to kick of the Olympic season, bringing the Brandt Centre crowd to its feet with her skate to the stirring "Black Swan." Osmond stumbled out of a triple toe loop then fell on a double Axel late in the program, but scored 212.91 for the victory.
    C'mon lady, pick one hometown or the other
