Poland: “Russia is not a country – it’s a state of mind!”

Other countries traditionally see Poland as a very strong team, but this year there are a lot of first-timers and only time will tell if they reach the heights of previous Olympiads. Jarosław, Mateusz, Paweł and Juliusz, a little tired but happy after a long walk, tell us how they are feeling before the Olympiad.

- Is this your first time at a big competition?

- It’s the first time for three of us, but Jarosław is far more experienced – this will be his fifth. (Jarosław) I won gold at the last two Olympiads.

- One of the organisers for IOI 2016 is Kazan Federal University – have you heard much about it?

- Yes – KFU is famous for its programmers. KFU students always do well at the ICPC championship.
