The gold medalists are Nguyen Hoang Duong, a 11th grader from Hanoi, Ly Hai Dang, a 12th grader from Hai Phong, Dam Thi Minh Trang, a 12th grader from nearby Nam Dinh Province, and Pham Trung Quoc Anh, a 12th grader from Nghe An Province in central Vietnam, according to the results released Thursday.

Dang scored the highest among the four - 97/100 - to rank 5th out of 231 candidates, while Duong ranked 9th, Anh 15th and Trang 22nd. Their achievements allowed Vietnam to rank second out of 60 competing countries and territories.

The competition from July 6-25 was supposed to be held in Istanbul, but the pandemic prompted event organizers to host it online instead.

The Vietnamese students took the exam at Hanoi National University of Education where they were monitored via the organizers’ camera system in real-time.

This year's competition saw 20 national teams less than the previous year due to Covid-19.

Last year, Vietnam bagged two gold medals and two silvers, finishing fifth out of 80 teams.
