It is important to monitor such events because invariably the top finishers almost all will become grandmasters and a few will someday contest the world title. The next world champion in the post-Kasparov era will probably be one of the kids at Marina d'Or, Spain.
There were a total of ten groups and ten world championships. There were the Boys under-10, boys under-12, boys under-14, boys under-16 and boys under-18. There were also the girls under-10, girls under-12, girls under-14, girls under-16 and girls under-18.
Ties were broken so that each section had one winner. Here are the winners:
