International Mathematical Olympiad

Congratulations to the team who represented the UK in the 2011 International Mathematical Olympiad. The team was put through 10 days of gruelling competition in Amsterdam from 13th – 24th July. Between them, they secured two gold, one silver and two bronze medals and also received one honourable mention.

The team and the medals awarded are as follows:
James Aaronson of St Paul's School (gold medal)
Andrew Carlotti of Sir Roger Manwood’s School (gold medal)
Ben Elliott of Godalming College (silver medal)
Adam Goucher of Netherthorpe School (bronze medal)
Jordan Millar of Regent House School (bronze medal)
Joshua Lam of The Leys School (honourable mention)

It was the first time in 15 years that the UK team was awarded two gold medals. The team finished 17th out of 101 countries. The UK entry was organised by the UK Mathematics Trust.

The problems the team faced can be downloaded from the IMO website.
