Temko confirmed himself as U18 Kona World Champion followed by the compatriot Maverick Putnam (USA), who climbed up to the fourth position in the overall ranking.

In the female category, the Swedish Johanna Hjertberg won the title with Canadian Andree Gauthier as the runner-up while Jerry Caplan (CAN) was the top Grand Master (65+).
