Juara Junior terbaru adalah GM muda dari Prancis Maxime Vachier-Lagrave. Saingan terdekat dari Belorusia Sergei Zhigalko tidak mampu menambah angka penuh setelah remis melawan Ivan Popov, sedangkan si Maxime sukses mengempuk si Dmitry Andreikin. Walaupun point akhir sama tapi perbedaan kekuatan lawan sebelumnya membuat si Maxime yang jadi juara. Maxime adalah pecatur kuat rating 2700 yang juara di turnamen berat Biel tahun ini.

Di bagian puteri pecatur India yang sulit diketik namanya (liat di atas) meraih medali emas, medali perak oleh WIM Deysi Cori yang saudari pecatur muda Jorge Cori (yang udah 3 norm GM). Pecatur Turki Betul Yildiz musti puas dengan medali perunggu.
