According to TSN on Sunday, Kaetlyn Osmond of Marystown, Newfoundland and Kevin Reynolds of Vancouver, British Columbia will represent Canada in figure skating at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

At the Canadian National Figure Skating Championships in Ottawa this weekend, Osmond won the women's competition, while Reynolds finished second in the men's competition to World Champion Patrick Chan of Ottawa, who is a gold medal favourite.

However it has been a difficult 2013-14 season for Osmond and Reynolds until now. Reynolds missed ISU Grand Prix events with a skate problem, while Osmond has been battling a hamstring injury.

Other figure skaters who will represent Canada at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi are Liam Firus of Vancouver, British Columbia in men's singles, and Gabrielle Daleman of Newmarket, Ontario in women's singles.

Canada will also send three pairs and ice dance teams. In pairs, Canada's representatives will be Meagan Duhamel of Lively, Ontario and Eric Radford of Balmertown, Ontario, the reigning World Championship bronze medalists; Kirsten Moore-Towers of St. Catharines, Ontario and Dylan Moscovitch of Waterloo, Ontario along with Paige Lawrence of Kennedy, Saskatchewan and Rudi Swiegers of Kipling, Saskatchewan.

In ice dance, Canada's representatives will be the defending Olympic champions, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of London, Ontario, Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje of Waterloo, Ontario along with Alexandra Paul and Mitchell Islam of Barrie, Ontario.

Unlike the U.S. National Figure Skating Championships in Boston, the top three figure skaters from each discipline at the Canadian National Figure Skating Championships will represent Canada at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.
