In July an e-mail from the head of a Slovak team of high school students, who had just returned from the International Math Olympics, landed in my inbox.
He would have liked the media to report on the one silver and three bronze medals that Michal Staník, Martin Melicher, Matej Urban and Dávid Pásztor won at this top competition though “I understand that this is not such an attractive topic as Sagan’s performance at the Tour de France.”
A few days later another piece of good news: Slovak students Jonáš Dujava and Ronald Doboš won two silver medals at this year’s International Physics Olympics. Róbert Jurčo added a bronze medal to the Slovak delegation's collection. Slovak high school students won two gold and two silver medals at the International Chemistry Olympics in Paris, thus achieving historically the best result in this competition for Slovakia. Andrej Kovács and Peter Rukovanský won gold medals and Samuel Novák and Michal Chovanec returned with a silver medal each. Congratulations to all of them!
