Australia represented in maths and informatics Olympiad

Talent and hard work have paid off for 10 students with a place in the Australian international maths and informatics Olympiad teams.

The high school students from all over Australia were merit-selected after participating in an annual program of high-level competitions, rigorous training schools and mentoring.

The culmination of their training will be competing virtually against approximately 100 countries in the 62nd International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) and 80 countries in the 33rd International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI).

The Australian Maths Trust (AMT) CEO, Nathan Ford, congratulated both teams at last night’s virtual launch and expressed his excitement in being able to support the next generation of innovative young minds.

“We have seen some amazing talent come out of the Olympiad program and we know that exposure to international competition builds on these young students’ innate talents, perseverance and creativity. I wish the IMO and IOI teams the best of luck in their competitions this year.

“We are also thrilled to see Ruiying Wu selected to the IMO team. She has been a dedicated team member of our European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad teams in 2020 and 2021 and I congratulate her on her selection as the first young woman participating in an Australian IMO team since 2016,” Ford said.
