Croatia Claims 2 Golds At Maths Olympics

Two Croatian students have arrived back in Croatia on Tuesday from the 54th International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) in Columbia with gold medals around their necks, the first time it has happened since Croatia started participating at the games.

Young 18-year-old Zagreb students Domagoj Cevid and Borna Vukorepa beat off over 500 students from 5 continents to claim gold at this year’s IMO. Cevid, who is a 4th grade student at Zagreb V. Gimnazija, achieved the best results in Croatia’s history at the event. The Croatian team finished in 30th position out of 97 countries. The IMO is the World Championship Mathematics Competition for High School students and is held annually in a different country. The first IMO was held in 1959 in Romania, with 7 countries participating. It has gradually expanded to over 100 countries from 5 continents.
