The Philippines won three Silver Medals and three Bronze Medals in the 58th International Mathematical Olympiad in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (July 13 to 23, 2017). The IMO is the world championship mathematics competition for high school students, making it one of the most prestigious and the most difficult academic competition of its kind.

While the team was unable to replicate last year’s two-fold gold medal feat (narrowly missing the gold cutoff by a single point), the team was able to keep its ranking of 17th out of 111 countries. The six Filipino contestants who competed with more than 600 other contestants are the following.

Kyle Patrick Dulay [Kyle Dulay] of Philippine Science High School (Main) – Silver Medal

Albert John Patupat of De La Salle University Integrated School – Silver Medal

Farrell Eldrian Wu of MGC New Life Christian Academy – Silver Medal

Shaquille Wyan Que of Grace Christian College – Bronze Medal

Sean Anderson Ty of Zamboanga Chong Hua High School – Bronze Medal

Clyde Wesley Ang [Clyde Wesley Si Ang] of Chiang Kai Shek College – Bronze Medal

The team was headed by Dr. Richard Eden of Ateneo de Manila University (Team Leader) and Dr. Louie John Vallejo of University of the Philippines – Diliman (Deputy Team Leader), both members of the Mathematical Society of the Philippines. The MSP holds the country’s training and participation in the IMO in partnership with the Department of Science and Technology – Science Education Institute [Science Education Institute - Department of Science and Technology].
