Congratulations to the USA team for getting the first place at the International Mathematical Olympiad 2015 !!! This is a fantastic performance! Members of the U.S. team included Ryan Alweiss, Allen Liu, Yang Liu, Shyam Narayanan, and David Stoner, all of whom were awarded gold medals, and Michael Kural, who earned a silver medal, just one point away from the gold. The team leader is Po-Shen Loh, professor at Carnegie Mellon University. The official country results can be found here.
This historic performance is USA first win since 1994. The US team was congratulated by the President Barack Obama in this tweet: https://twitter.com/WhiteHouse/status/621119189026078720. Hats off to the team!
The first picture was taken during one of my lectures with USA and Canada teams from the Mathematical Olympiad Summer Program. For more details about this news, see the link below:
