1999 was the first year that the qualifying competition in the Men's and Ladies' events counted towards the total score. Qualifying was 20% of the total score, the short program 30% and the free skate 50%.

Competition notesEdit

The competition was open to skaters representing an ISU member nation.

Due to the large number of participants, the men's and ladies' qualifying groups were split into groups A and B. In the ladies' qualifying group B, Klara Bramfeldt (SWE) and Marion Krijgsman (NED) tied for 17th place, leading to a three-way tie in overall standings for 33rd place in the ladies' event.
