The International Mathematical Olympiad might be something totally prestigious for some people, especially because of the fact that only the chosen students from the participant countries that are able to compete on this international mathematics event. Even though this event is considered as something quite prestigious, it turned out that there are still some of the greatest of the best students on this event. They are some of those students who break the record of earning the gold medal with the perfect score for three years in a row. Here are some of them.
The first one is Janoz Pintz, the Hungarian students who earned his gold medals from 1967 to 1969. During that time he won his gold medals, he also earned the perfect score on this greater mathematic competitions. Unfortunately, there are some people who think that his achievements at that time were not that great by saying that the problems were not as difficult as they are now. However, he personally proved that he was the only one who can get the perfect score for three years in a row during those times.
The next one is Ciprian Manolescu who joined the International Mathematical Olympiad with the Romanian team. This one is quite new because he won the gold medal for three years in a row from 1995 to 1997. He also earned the perfect achievements during all of those years. For and your information, there are also some other Romanian students who have some great achievements on the past International Mathematical Olympiad, but Manolescu is the best from all of those Romanian students.
Those are the only names that you can find if you are looking for the best students on the International Mathematical Olympiad. That is because the record of getting the perfect score for three years in a row is still being held by those two students. Basically, if you are looking for some other talented students, there are still quite a lot of students who get the bronze, silver, and even the gold medals in a row for few years. Some of them are Lisa Suermann, the German student who won the gold medal for four years in a row, Nipun Pitimanaaree, the Thailand students who also won the gold medal four times in a row, and even Zhuo Qun Alex Song from Canada who won the gold medals for five times in a row. However, none of those students had achieved the perfect score for three years in a row.
