She is the now the sixth woman in Canadian history to take home an Olympic medal in singles figure skating, the last being Joannie Rochette who won bronze in Vancouver back in 2010.

On Friday, the 22-year-old from Marystown, Nfld., skating in her second Olympics, won a medal of her own in Pyeongchang, under the sport's brightest lights. Skating to music from the "Black Swan", Osmond scored 152.15 for a total score of 231.02. Osmond was in position for a silver medal with one skater left: Medvedeva.

Russian skater Alina Zagitova took home the gold in the event, while her teammate Evgenia Medvedeva won silver.

Kaetlyn Osmond is coming home with a bronze medal from the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics. Osmond watched skaters go one by one until it her time was called. Both Zagitova and Medvedeva recorded world records in the short program.

The three finished in the same order in the short skate that was held two days ago.

"I was very happy when I saw the score, but I did not expect it", said the 15-year-old Zagitova, who had 82.92 points.

After placing seventh in the short program due to a slip on her signature triple toe-loop combination, where she placed a hand on the ice, Daleman struggled through a series of stumbles in her free skate, leaving her well off the podium with a combined score of 172.46 from the two programs.
