Polish high school students have won six medals, including one gold, at the 60th International Mathematical Olympiad in Bath, UK.
The best of the Polish mathematicians was Jan Fornal – a high-school graduate from Rzeszów. He won the competition after solving all the problems. He received the maximum number of points.
This is not the first success of the talented student, as he also won the Mathematical Olympiad last year and a bronze medal the year before.
Poland was also represented by five other students, from Gdańsk, Szczecin, Kraków, and Piotrków Trybunalski. They won three silver and two bronze medals.
With over 100 countries participating, the Polish students came 10th in the team ranking.
The International Mathematical Olympiad is the oldest among the prestigious subject competitions, bringing together most talented students from around the world. It is held in a different country each year.
