Yuka Sato (JPN) - 1990 World Junior Champion & 1994 World Champion

World Junior Champions who became World Champions in Ice Dancing

Back in 1976 the World Junior Figure Skating Championships  were first held. Today the 40th World Junior Championships 2017 start. The question always is who could get to be not only the Junior World Champion but also can achieve that in the Senior ranks. Here are those skaters who made it!

Oksana Domnina/Maxim Shabalin(RUS) - 2003 World Junior Champions & 2009 World Champions

Tessa Virtue/Scott Moir (CAN) - 2006 World Junior Champions & 2010 and 2012 World Champions

Due to all the splits that happen in ice dance only 2 couples ever managed to get a Gold together in Junior and Senior Worlds. Others achieved world junior and world senior titles with different partners though.
