This makes Vietnam secure the second place on the medal tally at the Olympiad, only after the US, and is the highest-ever result gained by the Vietnamese team so far.

The students are Ly Hai Dang, a 12th grader from Hai Phong city’s Tran Phu High School for the Gifted; Nguyen Hoang Duong, a 11th grader from the Natural Science High School for Gifted Students under Hanoi National University; Pham Trung Quoc Anh, a 12th grader from the Phan Boi Chau High School for the Gifted in central Nghe An province; and Dam Thi Minh Trang, a 12th grader from northern Nam Dinh province’s Le Hong Phong High School for the Gifted.

The Olympiad took place in Turkey with the participation of students from 60 countries and territories.

Last year, Vietnam won two gold and two silver medals, ranking fifth among participating nations and territories./.
