At last Euros Matilda was 31st and didn't qualify for FS.
In France she said that this season's international competitions will be taken into account, and she didn't do that well there either (she did quite bad actually, but I didn't check where Anita competed and what her results were). But she had very good performances at Nationals. Pity if she won't have any more competitions this season.

Östlund:
CS FIN 151,69
Halloween Cup 151,42
CS AUT 132,74

Algotsson:
CS GER 121,46
Ice Star Minsk 140,87
Volvo Cup 130,06
GP FRA 146,35

Their international season best score is not that far apart, but skated by Östlund in the first week of october, algotsson in the last week of november.

Östlund's scores got worse and then she got injured.
Algotsson got better and then scored 169,11pts at nationals (even with inflation, good score).

So, chosing Östlund is kinda :shuffle: to me.

Reviving this thread by replying to @SmallFairy's September 2018 post about Norway's Camilla Gjersem:
Camilla is studying law, but is taking a break from school this season to focus entirely on figure skating. She says it's been hard to juggle those too, and she's looking forward to only have one focus. Her main goal is to make it to worlds in Japan. (Source is Camilla herself, she coached my adult group at summer camp, and she's coaching us off ice once a week this fall. Talk about inspiring!)
Camilla wasn't able to get the minimums for 2019 Worlds :( (she was less than 2 points from the FS minimum and her best short program of the season came after the deadline at the Winter Universiade in Krasnoyarsk, Russia where she was coached by her twin, Anne Line, and scored 28.23 TES, just short of the Worlds SP minimum of 29).

She was the cover girl/story of last month's Juristen, a journal published by the Norwegian Legal Association -- the article machine translates pretty well and includes some nice photos: https://juristen.no/nyheter/2019/02/balanserer-lover-og-piruetter

She tweeted today that she's currently studying for final exams after undergoing an emergency appendectomy yesterday: https://twitter.com/CamillaGjersem/status/1114855407439233025

Best wishes to Norway's Camilla Gjersem who has tweeted/posted on her IG that she is retiring from competition: https://www.instagram.com/p/BxZiDhpoKD2/
A machine translated excerpt:
"It feels like I'm letting go of my first great love. A 17 year long and dedicated relationship. It hurts. Figure skating has at times defined me and undoubtedly helped shape me.
I achieved some of the goals I set, but not all. Nevertheless, I choose to look at the venture as successful."

Danish Nationals took place on December 7-8, 2019 (link to the competition thread in Kiss & Cry: https://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/th...hampionships-in-gentofte-dec-7-8-2019.106572/ )

Pernille Sørensen was named to the Danish national team for the 2019-20 season (July article on the federation website about the revamped "Elite program": https://www.danskate.dk/nyheder/udtagelser-saeson-2019-2020/ ) but has not competed since 2019 Worlds. In her absence, Camilla Grue won the Senior ladies national title.

Daniel Tsion won the Senior men's national title over Nikolaj Mølgaard Pedersen.

The top 2 Junior ladies at Nationals were Maia Sørensen (125.56), who won bronze at Tallinn Trophy in November, and Catharina Victoria Petersen (118.54), who debuted on the JGP this season. Both have the minimum scores for 2020 Junior Worlds and this Oct. 27 article on the federation's website states "... selection will take place after The Nordics on 6-9 February 2020":

The new team of Raffaella Adele Koncius and Rafael Marc Drozd Musil were the only Senior ice dance team at Natiionals; ditto for the new Junior team of Sara Buch-Weeke & Nicolas Woodcock - here's the link to an interview article with them dated May 31, 2019:

Thank you so much @Sylvia

I’m very excited for our ice dance team. Norway have never competed with an ice dance team internationally. I hope these two lasts longer than Thea Rabe/Timothy Koleto, who split with Euros really close. They would have been our first dancers ever.So, fingers crossed for Bjørkli/Koszuta 👏🏻
