Devans triumphs at International Mathematical Olympiad

Mevan Niluminda Wijewardena from Maliyadeva College, Kurunagela won a Bronze medal from the International Mathematical Olympiad 2012. This is a milestone reached due to our efforts over the last eight years, since the foundation was formed in 2004, to give our students to perform well at the IMO.

 

Sri Lankan team led by Supun T. Samarakoon (Leader) and Mahishanka Withanachchi (Deputy Leader) came up with an excellent performance at the 53rd  International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). The International Mathematical Olympiad is an annual world championship in Mathematics for High School students. It was started in 1959 with only seven countries, but over the years it has established itself as the most prestigious Mathematics competition of the world.
This year there were 548 contestants from 100 countries and the competition was held in Mar del Plata, Argentina from July 4 – 16, 2012. The Lankan team was selected out of more than 4000 students who participated at the Sri Lankan Mathematics Senior Competition conducted in centers throughout the island including Jaffna, Trincomalee, Batticaloa and Anuradhapura.

The team comprised Mevan Wijewardena (16) Maliyadeva College, Kurunagela, Aravinda Kanchana Ruwanpathirana (19) Royal College, Colombo,  Isuru Damindha Manchanayaka (18) Maliyadeva College, Kurunagela and Belpa Godage Chethana Chathuprabha (15) Richmond College, Galle.
At this competition Mevan Niluminda Wijewardena from Maliyadeva College, Kurunagela won a Bronze medal. This is a milestone reached due to our efforts over the last eight years, since the foundation was formed in 2004, to give our students to perform well at the IMO. Especially with Mevan who is the youngest IMO Medal winner for Sri Lanka, the future of Sri Lankan performances in the IMO looks brighter. Isuru Damindha Manchanayaka also from Maliyadeva College, Kurunagela missed the Bronze medal but he was awarded with an Honorable Mention Certificate.  
The training for these students was provided by volunteers from the Sri Lanka Mathematics Foundation whose untiring efforts have yielded good results.
