We know that Russia is a great and powerful country. We know Kazan as the sports capital of Russia, so we were very interested to come here and learn more about Kazan University. We really like Kazan because there is green wherever you look. We also like the local architecture, such as the Kremlin and
Bauman Street. We’re been training for the Olympiad for nine months, and before that took part in local tournaments – the journey here wasn’t easy. What are our strengths? We’re all friends – all unique, and I think many contestants here will know one of us – Amir – who is one of the best programmers at
Codeforces. This is my second time at the Olympiad and can say that our main competitors are Russia (who are always very strong) and China. But we’ll try to beat them!
