AIPO 2013 Silver medallist Abdullah Mohammad along with his team partner Adam O'Sullivan recorded a remarkable victory at the annual Inter Colliege Programming Competition hosted by UCC and the ACM and sponsored by BigFish Games.

21 teams competed of which 3 were second-level student and AIPO contestants. The teams had to complete 5 problems each with 10 test cases in 4 hours with Abdullah and Adam scoring an impressive 29 points, 9 points clear of the second placed TCD team, Tea++. 

The other remarkable result was the battle for third place, which took two tie-breaker questions to separate the teams with the AIPO-IOI panel team of Richard Tynan and Maciej Goszczycki prevailing over the other MPT team which included the AIPO 2013 Junior winner Caelen Feller aged 14.

The DCU/Redbrick team, 'Kod-a-line', came in in 5th place just 1 point behind the fourth place MPT team so  well done to them aswell!
