Next up are the four from Sweden who have travelled to the IOI with one great aim - a successful performance. We interviewed Joakim Blikstad, David Wärn, Karl Lundstig and Frederik Hernqvist.
- Do you have any experience of participation in international Olympiads like this?
Joakim: - We all took part in the IOI a year ago and I won a silver medal!
Karl: - I tried for bronze but didn’t manage it. So I’ve here to make up for the loss. Anyway, I will try to do my best, but stay realistic as well.
- What are your hobbies apart from IT?
Joakim: - I like sailing - I’ve even taken part in a sailing championship.
David: - I play a lot of “Pokémon Go” but didn’t manage to catch any in Kazan.
- What are your expectations of this Olympiad? What are your aims here?
Frederik: - We expect the tasks to be as difficult as ever, but solvable of course.
David: - To become the best Scandinavian team or at least do better than the Norwegians!
