List of International Mathematical Olympiad participants


List of International Mathematical Olympiad participants

The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is an annual international high school mathematics competition focused primarily on pre-collegiate mathematics, and is the oldest of the international science olympiads. [cite web|url=http://olympiads.win.tue.nl/imo/|title=International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO)|date=2-1-08] The awards for exceptional performance include medals for roughly the top half participants, and honorable mentions for participants who solve at least one problem perfectly.cite web|url=http://imo2006.dmfa.si/results_itd.html|title=47th International Mathematical Olympiad Results|date=2-1-08]

This is a list of participants whom have achieved notability. This includes participants that went on to become notable mathematicians and participants who scored highly.

High-scoring participants

The following table lists all IMO Winners who have won at least three gold medals, with corresponding years and non-gold medals received noted (S denotes a silver medal, B denotes a bronze medal and P denotes a perfect score of 42).

Notable participants

A number of IMO medalists went on to become notable mathematicians. The following medalists received either a Nevanlinna Prize, a Knuth Prize, a Gödel Prize, a Fields Medal, or a Wolf Prize for original work in either computer science or mathematics. G denotes a gold medal, S denotes a silver medal, and B denotes a bronze medal.
