Entering the last round of the boys'/open section of the World Junior Championship four players shared the lead with 9/12: Lu Shanglei, Wei Yi, Vladimir Fedoseev and Jan-Krzysztof Duda. Three of the four drew: Fedoseev with Black against Kamil Dragun (the only 8.5 entering the last round) while Wei and Duda split the point against each other in a Fritz-Ulvestad Two Knights(!). As for Lu Shanglei, he played an 8-pointer, but with the black pieces against a nominally higher-rated player he was far from a shoo-in. Nevertheless, he absolutely crushed his opponent (Aleksandar Indjic) and took clear first with 10/13. The other three leaders finished with 9.5, and sadly for one of them he was out of the medals due to tiebreaks. Wei Yi took second, Jan-Krzysztof Duda took second and Vladimir Fedoseev was in the worst spot: fourth.
As for the girls' section, there was no drama in the race for first. Aleksandra Goryachkina repeated moves right after the opening to finish the event; she had already clinched the title a round earlier. Her final score of 11/13 left a point and a half ahead of the other medalists, Sarasadat Khademalsharieh and Ann Chumpitaz.
