    How many players so far have won World Junior Title and eventually won the World Championships?

    for raughly looks, I found that

    MS:

    Sun Jun WJC: 1992 WC: 1999
    Chen Jin WJC: 2002, 2004 WC: 2010

    WS:

    Gong Ruina WJC: 1998 WC: 2001
    Wang Yihan WJC: 2006 WC: 2011
    Wang Lin WJC: 2007 WC: 2010
    Ratchanok Inthanon WJC 2009,2010,2011 WC: 2013

    for WD, MD, and XD, there are players that won both WJC and WC, but mostly they change their partners, If anyone could list the name, it would be nice.


    Note1: WJC starts at 1992, so some players didn't have a chance to play in WJC (and I believe if they play, they may win WJC too, such as Susi Susanti)

    Note2: many World Champions rule the world without WJC such as Super Lin Dan right now :D
