Andreikin and Muzychuk in Chotowa
 
 The World junior games. (551 ko)
 The World girls games. (366 ko)
 

The top seeds lived up to expectations and won their respective events in the World Junior Championships.
So Dmitry Andreikin is World junior Champion whereas Anna Muzychuk is World Girls Champion for 2010.

The venue for this year's thirteen round World Juniors (from the 2nd-17th of August) was Chotowa in South-East Poland.

A number of the leading players have already distinguished themselves over the last few months and the competition was as intense as always for this coveted prize.
Russians finished 'one, two and four' demonstrating yet again that country's ability to keep producing world-beaters.
Note the excellent third place by the home player Dariusz Swiercz and the surprising fifth by United Arab Emirates outsider Saleh Salem.
