The Thorold Figure Skating Club is proud to present their 68th annual Ice Show themed as “Dancing through the Decades” on February 23rd and 24th at the Thorold Arena.
Figure skating fans will be happy to know that this year’s show will feature special guest skater Kaetlyn Osmond. A Canadian figure skater who competed in ladies’ singles, Kaetlyn is the 2018 World Champion, the 2018 Olympic team event champion, and the 2018 Olympic bronze medalist. On her list of accomplishments, Osmond is also the 2014 Olympic team event silver medalist, the 2017 World silver medalist, the 2017 Grand Prix Final bronze medalist, and a three-time Canadian national champion winning in 2013, 2014, and 2017.
Born in 1995, Osmond started skating at three years of age. With no ice available in the summer in Kaetylyn’s hometown of Marystown, Newfoundland, she often travelled with elder sister Natasha to train in Montreal.
As a member of Canada’s figure skating team at the 2018 Winter Olympics, she placed third in the short program portion of the team event, where the Canadians triumphed as the gold medal winners.
In the individual event, Osmond achieved her new personal best in the short program and free skate, and won the bronze medal behind Zagitova and Medvedeva. Osmond’s was the 27th medal won by Team Canada at the 2018 Winter Olympics, which scored a new national record and beat the total set in the Vancouver Olympics eight years prior.
On February 23rd and 24th, Kaetlyn should receive a hero’s welcome at the Ice Show in Thorold when the guest of honor skates as a living inspiration for your local youth.
In its 68th season, the Thorold Figure Skating Club is a local organization offering an array of skating memberships. In addition to producing the Ice Show, the TFSC offers a program for everyone including Canskate, Star Skate, Skate Canada test skating, private lessons Adult Skating and Synchronized skating.
