Vietnamese students claimed two gold medals at the 2021 Asia-Pacific Informatics Olympiad (APIO), which took place last weekend.

Aside from the gold medals, they also pocketed one silver and three bronzes, the Ministry of Education and Training confirmed on Wednesday.

With this result, Vietnam ranked fourth among the 35 participating countries and territories at the event, following China, Iran, and Japan.

This year’s APIO was hosted by Indonesia on May 22 and 23, but the event was organized virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Vietnamese team, which included 15 contestants, competed at the University of Engineering and Technology under the Vietnam National University-Hanoi.

The gold medals went to Le Quang Huy, a 12th grader from High School for Gifted Students in Natural Sciences under the Vietnam National University-Hanoi, and Truong Van Quoc Bao, an 11th grader from Phan Boi Chau High School for the Gifted in the north-central province of Nghe An.

Ho Ngoc Vinh Phat, who studies in 12th grade at Quoc Hoc – Hue High School for the Gifted in the central province of Thua Thien - Hue, won the silver medal.

The three bronze medals belonged to two 12th graders in Ho Chi Minh City and northern Hai Duong Province, and a 10th grader in Hanoi.

The 2021 APIO attracted 845 contestants, 228 of whom were nominated for medals.
