All members of the Russian national team received medals at the International Chemical Olympiad, TASS reports. Ilya Chaika from the Chelyabinsk region took first place and was awarded a gold medal.
Each country was represented by four people. The national team also included Muscovites Vasilisa Kislitsyna and Yevgeny Epifanov and St. Petersburg resident Viktor Nosov. All of them became silver medalists.
The 52nd competition of the best young chemists was held online. It consisted of only one stage - theoretical. The organizers had to abandon practical experiments.
Each student answered questions in writing. The answers were scanned right after the end and submitted to the jury for verification. Each participant was assigned a special observer. The competition was also recorded on video.
The top three participants in the Olympiad included Chinese, South Korean and American students.
Earlier, Ilya Chaika had become the absolute winner of the Mendeleev Olympiad. He showed a unique result, scoring over 90% points.
