IMO 2011: Final results

The medal cuts were set yesterday morning at bronze 16, silver 22, gold 28. These weren’t quite the numbers we had been hoping for…but they still give us a fantastic result of two silver, two bronze, and two honourable mentions. These are New Zealand’s seventh and eighth silver medals; all those without medals get honourable mention (a first^*); and we maintained the standing of 29th country which we acheived last year. Oh, and don’t forget that we’re only two points behind Australia, and have a higher top score!

The afternoon was spent in an excursion to the central city with our team guide Marlisa Hommel, wandering Amsterdam’s many cobbled streets and bridges, and taking a boat ride on its network of canals. The excursion finished in a dinner at the NEMO science centre. The closing ceremony is this afternoon, followed by a party, and then we all say farewell and begin our journeys home tomorrow. It has been a wonderful (and fantastically organised!) IMO.

Full results can be found on the official IMO site.

(*) Yes, I know this isn’t strictly correct, because of the empty set! But it’s still a first, with that one exception.
