U.S. Team Takes First Place at International Mathematical Olympiad IMO2015
Chiang Mai, Thailand: The six-person team representing the United States took first place at the 56th International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). The 2015 IMO was held in Chiang Mai, Thailand, from July 4 to 13.
IMO scores are based on the number of points scored by individual team members on six problems. The problems are taken in sets of three in 4.5 hour sessions over two days. The U.S. team’s combined score of 185 edged out the Chinese team’s score of 181 and the Republic of Korea’s third-place score of 161.
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 last time the U.S. team took first place was in 1994.
