Six Filipino students won prizes at the 63rd International Mathematical Olympiad, which took place in Oslo, Norway, from July 6 to July 16.

Mohammad Nur Casib of the PSHS-Central Mindanao campus and Raphael Dylan Dalida of the PSHS main campus each received a bronze medal.

On the other hand, honorable mentions were given to Filbert Ephraim Wu of Victory Christian International School, Sarji Elijah Bona of De La Salle University-Senior High School, Enrico Rolando Martinez of PSHS Main Campus, Rickson Caleb Tan of MGC New Life Christian Academy, and Sarji Elijah Bona of De La Salle University-Senior High School.

Dr. Christian Paul Chan Shio of Ateneo de Manila University led the Philippine team on behalf of the Mathematical Society of the Philippines.

Shio was accompanied by Russelle Guadalupe, also from UP Diliman, as trainer and Hazel Joy Shi, a deputy leader from UP Diliman.

One of the most challenging and prominent math competitions for high school students globally is the International Mathematical Olympiad.

More than 100 nations competed in this year's edition, each team consisting of up to six people.

Enrico Fos, the Philippine ambassador to Norway, praised the students.

“Their feat in this Math Olympiad is worthy of emulation by the other kids of their generation in the Philippines. After all, this is a math competition of the best and brightest high school math wizards worldwide,” Fos said.
