Romanian students participating in the International Astronomy and Astrophysics Olympiad in Georgia obtained an exceptional performance, winning a gold medal and the title of the best European competitor.
Vlad-Stefan Oros, a triple champion from Timisoara’s Theoretical High School “Grigore Moisil,” earned the gold medal and the distinction of top European competitor. This year, Vlad also took home a silver medal from the International Linguistics Olympiad and a gold medal from the International Physics Olympiad, which placed him in second place globally.
Several Romanian students obtained exceptional results at international Olympiads this year, which Romania can be proud of. Among them is also the double gold medalist Andrei-Darius Dragomir (International Theoretical High School of Informatics from Bucharest), who won a gold medal at the International Physics Olympiad.
Romanian students Vladimir George Necula, Razvan-Mihail Ciurescu, and Razvan-Gabriel Marcu won bronze medals (all three from the International Theoretical Computer Science High School in Bucharest). This year, Razvan-Gabriel Marcu also took home a gold medal at the International Physics Olympiad this year.
The students were guided by exceptional teachers such as Petru Craciun (ISJ Suceava), Cristian Pirghie (University “Stefan cel Mare” from Suceava), professor Rodica Ionescu, professor Dr. Delia Davidescu and university professor Dr. Adrian Dafinei.
Also, the second Romanian team participating in the Olympics obtained remarkable results: Traian Rares Tus (National College “Gh. Sincai” from Baia Mare); Mendel Mendelson (International Theoretical High School of Informatics from Bucharest); Mihai Bogdan Ciocarlan (National College “Gh. Murgoci” from Braila); Teofil Voicu (National College “Emil Racovita” from Cluj-Napoca); Andrei Dragos Sirghi (National College “Stefan cel Mare” from Suceava).
Romania has exceptional young people who gain global recognition at the Olympiads and many outstanding teachers who form the new generation. There is no doubt about the ability of young students from Romania, which is seen in the performances they achieve yearly. The Romanian Government should encourage these children more because congratulations are not enough. Despite the educational system in Romania, these students achieve high performance. Unfortunately, more and more young people like these are leaving Romania for their studies or after graduation to perform professionally and ensure a better future. The concern would be what the Romanian Government is doing to encourage them to stay in the country and perform here.
