Team Ireland selected for 2013 IOI


By admin - Posted on 08 July 2013

After 2 days of intense training at the AIPO-IOI training camp here in DCU, the final competition to select the team to represent Ireland at the International Olympiad in Informatics was held.

At the end of 5 hours of competiton covering three IOI grade tasks, Richard Tynan (Team Ireland IOI2012) emerging as the overall winner with an impressive score of 150 points. The race for the last place on the plane to Australia was more interesting with Richard's other team mates from the 2012 IOI battling it out between them. Abdullah Mohammad looked to have secured the spot with score of 80 points on the Network of Schools problem but young Maciej Goszczycki submitted a brute force solution to the difficult Rivers problem in the final hour which got him 40 points and brought his total score up to 90 points.

Richard and Maciej will now fly out to the IOI in Australia on Tuesday 2nd July for almost two weeks with our delegation leader, Charlie Daly. After a few days of acclimazation in Brisbane they will be straight back into competition mode with the practice session on Sunday the 7th and Day 1 of competition on Monday the 8th July.
