Canadian figure skater Kaetlyn Osmond has won the ladies competitions at the ‘Nebelhorn Trophy 2012’ in Germany Sept. 29 weekend.

The former Marystown resident performed a strong short program and followed that with an impressive performance in her free skating to claim her first international gold medal.

Osmond received 170.19 points overall and her first victory at the international skating competitions.

Russia’s Adelina Sotnikova made mistakes in free skating program. She finished second overall with 168.23 points.

In the 2011-12 season Osmond, now living in Alberta, competed on the senior level for the first time at the Canadian Championships. She was first after the short program, ahead of the defending champion Cynthia Phaneuf but finished with the bronze medal.

At the 2012 Junior Worlds, Osmond won the preliminary round and finished 10th overall.
