2011 International Mathematical Olympiad

Singapore did extremely well in the International Mathematical Olympiad held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from 13 to 24 July; it ranked 3rd out of 101 participating countries, achieving its best ever placing and beating traditional powerhouses Russia and Japan. The team included three Year 5 Rafflesians – Joseph Kuan, Ding Yue and Ryan Kor (all from 12S06L).

Both Joseph and Ding Yue obtained gold medals in the competition, with Joseph ranking 4th overall in a field of 564 participants in his 1st participation. The last time Singapore had achieved her one and only one gold medal in this annual competition was in 1996, courtesy of Rafflesian Senkodan Thevendran. Meanwhile, Ryan was awarded a bronze medal.
