CANADIAN OSMOND GOLDEN, SUZUKI WINS SILVER AND MURAKAMI EARNS BRONZE

2011 Canadian silver medalist and 2012 Nebelhorn Trophy champion delivered the second best free skate to win her first Senior Grand Prix event. Kaetlyn Osmond, skating to Carmen, opened her program with a triple flip, double toe-loop combination and then fell on her triple lutz. She stepped out of the first jump of her planned three jump combination.

“It has been a great experience being in my own country… I learned how everything works” Osmond said. Osmond does not have any other Senior Grand Prix assignments.

Akiko Suzuki, 2011 Skate Canada silver medalist, won the free skate to earn the silver medal. Her free program, skated to O from Cirque du Soleil, was delivered with grace and elegance, highlighted by beautiful arm extensions. Suzuki completed a solid double axel, triple toe-loop combination and landed 3 other triple jumps.

“I put the short program behind me. I am happy with my performance in the free.” Suzuki said.

Kanako Murakami, of Japan, was fourth in the free program and captured the bronze medal at her first appearance at Skate Canada. She earned a score of 111.83.

“I performed quite well and I am pleased” Murakimi said.

2011 Skate Canada champion, Elizaveta Tuktamysheva of Russia, sixth after the short program delivered the third best free program and finished fourth overall. Her free program, skated to Dark Eyes, featured a beautiful axel, triple toe-loop combination and triple salchow, double toe-loop combination.
