Newfoundland’s Kaetlyn Osmond finished the short program today in women’s figure skating at the Sochi Olympics in Russia, well below her personal best time.

Her score was 56:18.

Osmond stumbled at one point, and downgraded a jump, but still did well in the judges’ eyes.

She will perform in the long program Thursday with a chance to make up some ground.

The winner of today's event, South Korea's Yuna Kim, earned a score of 74.92.

    Kaetlyn would have performed even better is our provincial government actually gave her money to support her training over the years. Where's the help when you need it? Danny, Dunderdale or Marshall…..not one of them gave her a dime. Our skating club won't forget.

    Not a chance anymore. To far away from the top tree to count. Enjoy the experience over there. Once in a lifetime.

    1) The event is over yet. She's currently 12 with two skaters to go. 2) 56.18 isn't her time; it's her score 3) If you don't know enough about figure skating to write about it, don't write about it.

    Yuna kim is from South Korea, not North Korea.
