As reported by Ukrainian mathematician, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor of Computational Mathematics at the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Bohdan Rubliov, the Ukrainian team has won the European Mathematics Olympiad for the third time. The team of schoolgirls from Kyiv and Kharkiv beat Russia by one point and walked away with first prize.

The winning team:

  • Olha Shevchenko (Grade 11, Kharkiv, Gymnasium No.45);
  • Alina Harbuzova (Grade 10, Kharkiv, Physics and Mathematics School No.27);
  • Alina Yan (Grade 11, Kyiv, Physics and Mathematics Lyceum of the Taras Shevchenko National University);
  • Yuliya Zdanovska (Grade 11 class, Kyiv, Physics and Mathematics Lyceum of the Taras Shevchenko National University).
Ukraine scored 126 points, Russia – 125.

The team’s trip was sponsored by the Leonid Kuchma Presidential Fund of Ukraine.

The teams competed for two days; their task was to solve three mathematical problems in 4.5 hours.

44 countries participated in the competition with four competitors from each country. Their results were added up and the winning country was announced.

The European Mathematical Olympiad for schoolgirls was first held in Cambridge, UK in 2012. This year the math competition was held in Zurich, Switzerland.

This is the sixth time the competition has been organized, and the third win for Ukraine (first place in the third, fourth and sixth competitions).
