I got an email with Bev Smith's article in it this morning, and it was very welcomed news. Well Katelyn made the top 10 didn't she?! :D That should mean we get to send 3 skaters next year.
If memory serves, she's a Newfoundland girl too, isn't she. Also quite a feather in Ravi Wallia's cap, to have coached a world champion. Karen Magnussen is said to be overjoyed at passing on the torch after 44 years.
What a great skate by Katelyn. Well deserved!

I created a separate thread about Karen "passing the torch", Fred :)

The placements of Kaetlyn + Gabby (1 + 7 = 8) indeed means that Canada gets to send 3 women next year :)

Kaetlyn is from Marystown, NF where there is an arena and a street named after her - will they rename the town next :D

Some people talk about her as the "girl who trains in a shopping mall" - big congratulations to Kaetlyn, her coach Ravi, and her choreographers (Lance Vipond for SP & Jeffrey Buttle for the FS)!!!

Well the men are done and up next will be the free dance.

Carol Lane was just on CBC News Network talking about Kaetlyn's achievement :)

Update - the free dance is one and all the medals have been awarded.

Now the final two events are being shown on CBC TV.

If you missed the live stream of the Gala, it is now available on the CBC website: http://www.cbc.ca/sports/video/full-shows/1194588739894

Here's the "usual" photo of the champions, from Danielle Earl

I understand, from friends who were there, that it was a wonderful show. I'm sure the CBC TV version will not be able to include everything/everyone.
