All four members of the Vietnamese national team have won silver medals at the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI) 2021 held online recently.

The four students winning the medals include Ho Ngoc Vinh Phat, Le Quang Huy, Truong Van Quoc Bao, and Nguyen Hoang Vu.

Phat and Huy are 12th graders at Quoc Hoc - Hue High School for Gifted Students in Thua Thien-Hue Province and the High School for Gifted Students in Natural Sciences under the Vietnam National University-Hanoi, respectively, while Bao and Vu are both 11th graders at Phan Boi Chau High School for Gifted Students in Nghe An Province.

The IOI 2021 was hosted by Singapore in the online format from June 19 to 25, attracting 351 contestants from 90 countries and territories.

The Vietnamese team took part in the competition at the University of Technology under the Vietnam National University-Hanoi.

Last month, at the Asia-Pacific Informatics Olympiad, also organized virtually, Huy and Bao claimed two gold medals while Phat won a silver, along with three other teammates who bagged three bronzes.

Amid the complicated COVID-19 spread, Vietnam had fully prepared for its students to attend the IOI 2021, meeting the IOI organizing committtee’s requirements on both epidemic prevention and professionalism.

This is the second year that the IOI contest has been held online due to the COVID-19 impacts.

In the IOI 2020, the Vietnamese team snatched one gold medal, two silvers, and one bronze.

Vietnam has taken part in the IOI since 1989, when the first contest was held, and has so far won 17 gold, 41 silver, and 52 bronze medals.
