Belarusian Student Wins Gold at Chemistry Olympiad

From July 23 to August 1, the 48th International Chemistry Olympiad was held in Tbilisi, Georgia. Belarusian high school students achieved major success at the event, coming home with one gold and three silver medals.

The event gathered 264 participants from 67 countries. Kanstantsin Anisovich, a student of the 13th Minsk gymnasium, is among the gold medalists of the Olympiad.

The gold medal doesn’t mean an absolute victory at the competition. Participants receive several medals of each value based on their results. Roman Larkovich and Hryhory Sinenka, students of the Lyceum of Belarusian State University, as well as Miraslav Makarevich from the 47th comprehensive school in Minsk won the silver medals.

Earlier in July, five high school students from Belarus represented the country at the 47th International Physics Olympiad in Zurich, Switzerland. The students returned to Belarus with four medals and an honorable mention.

The International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) is an annual academic competition for high school students. It is one of the International Science Olympiads. The first IChO was held in Prague, Czechoslovakia, in 1968. The event has been held every year since then, with the exception of 1971.

In 2017, the Olympiad will take place in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand.
