After skimming through the IMO official website, my reaction is that despite having finished high school 3 years ago, I’m just 19 years old right now, so I should’ve been one of the contestants representing Cambodia as well 😀 (kidding…)
While most of the countries invest in contestants who never won Gold medals before, “three” out of six Singaporean participants sent to this year’s event won Gold medals in the previous IMO (go again, collect golds, up the rank eh? Smart…).
I notice that Zuming Feng is no longer the leader for the China team since 2014. Where is he now? Where are Titu Andreescu and Dorin Andrica?
Only one of the six South Korean participants is experienced, having won a medal (silver) in the previous IMO (why no smart like Singapore?).
Team US and team North Korea look promising as always. But I bet their performance might not be as good as the previous year.
Which country will claim the number 1 spot this year? How many perfect scores will there be?
After having missed 4 consecutive IMO events, Cambodia team is back in this Olympic-equivalent maths competition. Will the Cambodian team finally bring home an IMO medal? At least one please… Bronze also can… 😀
Su su Cambodian team! *finger-crossed*
All the best to all the contestants, leaders, and observers! Have a fun and successful IMO! 🙂
