MATHLets: Supporting Ukrainian Team in International Math Olympiads

Nova Ukraine, partnering with Razom, is proud to announce its support for Ukranian Math Team participating in International Math Olympiads.

The 59th International Mathematical Olympiad – 2018

The 59th International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) was held in Cluj-Napoca in Romania from 3rd to 14th of July, 2018. Ukraine took the absolute 4th place in team rating for the first time in the history of the IMO, giving way only to superpowerful teams – USA, Russia, and China.


Ukrainian team members got 4 golds and 2 silvers medals and unlike all previous years, none of our team members had failed. We are very proud of them! This year everybody on the team solved 2 easier problems, 1st and the 4th, and more complicated 5th problem. Two of our participants (Koval and Yudin) did not quite complete the 2nd problem, but each of them solved really complicated problems – Koval solved the 3rd one, and Yudin solved the 6th. This is how a great success was achieved by the Ukranian dream-team!

For the first time, Ukranian Team won a bronze medal in the team competition, and Ngo Ngok Thai Shon took gold in the personal score. The result in the team score consists of the sum of the three best results among the four participants that the team leaders chose before the start of the competition. The more detailed score can be found here.


The Romanian Master of Mathematics is useful not just as competition, but also as training of our best students for future Olympiads. The team is currently preparing for the main Olympiad of the year: The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO), which will also be held in Romania, in Cluj-Napoca.
