2013 Junior worlds and moving from junior to senior

Junior worlds are currently taking place in Milan; the results page is here. Fans often like to speculate about the future success of junior skaters (or even younger skaters). It's worth keeping in mind, however, that while many skaters have found success at both the junior and senior level...

Not all of them did so all that quickly...

For others, a Junior World title was probably the high point of their competitive career...

And at the other extreme, there are skaters who didn't make a splash until they were seniors - and in certain cases, it was well into their senior career.

So, which juniors will be a future superstars - the medalists from Junior Worlds, or the skaters further down the ranks? Some combination thereof? Whatever happens, good luck to all the young skaters competing at the event, whether it's the start of a great career or an achievement in itself.
