After having grabbed gold medals, a delegation of 4 Peruvian students clinched victory at the Ibero-American Mathematical Olympiad recently held in Buenos Aires (Argentina).

Upon arrival at Peru's Lima-based Jorge Chavez International Airport, national participants were greeted —with applause and cheers— by their relatives and teachers.

Led by tutor Jonathan Farfan, the Peruvian squad was composed of students: Jemisson Coronel Baldeon (17), Renzo Rodrigo Balcazar Tapia (15), Daniel Marcelo Benavides Quispialaya (15) and Diego Enrique Lázaro Cusihuaman (16).

It must be noted said high school students have already won medals at international tournaments, thus placing Peru's name on high.

The competition

The Olympiad was held in 2 competition-days. Likewise, each assessment was composed of three questions to be solved within a 4-and-a-half-hour period.
