Kaetlyn Osmond ends a 45 year drought for Canadian women at the world figure skating championships. The 22-year-old from Marystown, N.L., won the women’s singles crown in Milan, Italy, scoring 150.50 points for her Black Swan routine to finish with 223.23 points overall. Osmond stood fourth following the short program. Osmond, a bronze medallist at last month’s Winter Games in South Korea, became the first Canadian woman to win gold at the world championship since Karen Magnussen in 1973.
Japan’s Wakaba Higuchi was second at 210.90 with compatriot Satoko Miyahara finishing third at 210.08. Gabrielle Daleman of Newmarket, Ont., was seventh.
