The first place has been taken by Zuofan Wu from China, he managed to score and absolute maximum - 300 out of 300 possible, The second - 297 points - is divided by Ce Jin and Vlad Makeev.
We heard from some of the participants about how they found the first round of IOI.
Israel: We liked the first question best – we all did well on it. Basically, you were given a number sequence and had to find the interval value between them.
Romania: The first task was quite easy but the second two were hard, which is why right now we’re in a stressful situation: many contestants are on the same number of points in the table after the first round. When I read the third task I thought “Ouch!”. If I managed to cope with the first task, then for the third I had absolutely no idea. For the second one you needed a moment of brilliance to help you. I don’t think anyone got 300 points today!
Canadian team leader Troy Vasiga: Training for the Olympiad was very tough, but worth it. Our team are ready to solve any problem. It’s a shame we’ll have a different team next year. What issues have I had in my work? We had some trouble yesterday translating the text, but
fortunately everything was resolved.
