So I guess Nikolaj and Josefin are not on the Team because they should be prepared for OG, does that mean they Swedish Olympic committee finally came to their senses??!

Unless they gamble that they will make their requirements at Euros.

Btw, Sweden is sending quite a team. I´m wondering what is up with Matilda A. though, havn´t seen her a in a long time.

Is Finland really sending their Olympic Team to Nordics or are they planning to WD that is going? Emmi is already out because of injury, Jenni will probably go to Beijing.

It´s totally weird Nordics is in the end of January already, but i´m glad they arrange it before OG.

And because of injury, Emmi will be also replaced somebody, probably Oona also here. I think the one, probably Jenni, who will be selected to Olympics also will skip this and concentrate to it. Oona has a small chance to get the OC spot, but it means she had to skate 100 % clean at Euros and get at least 181,95 points In that case, if Oona could get it, Jenni's scores should be 19,28 points lower than Oona's (Yes, I love mathematic :ROFLMAO:). Based on rule the federation has, in singles two skater's best competition scores counted together will be count and the one of the senior's result must be CS or GP or Euro's. They haven't actually announced if the rule is the same as for worlds, but usually they have the same rules for OC.

So ladies' teams will more likely to be Linnea, Oona and Laura, if they all stay healthy. Oona does already have the TES for worlds, so Nordics is not important competition for her in that perspective.

I have no idea, but hopefully soon. It will be interesting to see if there will be any other skaters from other countries as well. Deniss was there in 2019? or 2020?, it was an easy win for him to collect WR points. Wouln´t it be great if the US send a skater like Ilia to get his minimums for Worlds (Ok, I know he can´t go because he is first alternate for the Olympics), or Gracie Gold. In that case, I would book myself a flight to Denmark right away :ROFLMAO: We will not see skaters who go to Olympics or 4CC for that matter, 4CC will be the week before, but it also not far from Denmark, so who knows. There is still a lot of interesting skaters who don´t go to Olympics who might attend.

Since this competition is before Challenge Cup this year there might be a few other attending who wants to get the Worlds minimum. Bavarian Open who is the week before might be too close to Europeans for those who needs a bit of rest. Since the competition is in Denmark this year it´s much more available.

Also, I wanted to comment on the fact that it will be arranged in something called Bitcoin Arena :ROFLMAO: I´m really interested in the story behind this name, was it build with the funding of someone who got rich from Bitcoin?

Oh how did I have exactly the same thought, about the exact same skaters (Ilia & Gracie).

Wow, Olga M! But isn´t she going to the Olympic?! It seems weird she will do this so close before departure. I suspect if she goes it´s because WR points so she can start in a later group in Beijing, but that seems risky taking the risk.

Maurizio Zandron is also scheduled to compete this week at Bavarian Open. So, if this is really happenening, he's doing three competitions in a row (he's not going to the Olympics, not a thing with him) which seems a bit much for any skater.
