Kaetlyn Osmond landed seven triple jumps for the first time in her career on Saturday to win gold in women's singles at the 2017 Autumn Classic International figure skating competition.
The Marystown, N.L., native came within less than a point of her personal best with 217.55 in Pierrefonds, Que., Mai Mihara of Japan was second at 199.02 and Elizabet Tursynbaeva of Kazakhstan third at 181.00.
"It's so exciting I love both my programs this year," said Osmond. "And to do them both well here means so much to me. To get the seven triples is a big bonus."
It was a Canadian medal sweep in ice dancing. World champions Tessa Virtue of London, Ont., and Scott Moir, from Ilderton, Ont., won the gold with 195.76, Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje of Waterloo, Ont., were second at 173.56 and Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier of Toronto were third at 172.26.
