“Congratulations to our Filipino students for achieving a bountiful harvest of medals this year at IMC. We commend them for their hard work,” MTG president Dr. Isidro Aguilar said in a statement released to media.
The Philippines duplicated its 27 golds at the 2018 edition of the Singapore competition, together with 53 silver, and 116 bronze medals. The Philippines has previously earned 1st Overall rank in the 2017 IMC following a massive award haul that included 33 gold, 66 silver, and 146 bronze medals for the Filipino elementary and high school mathletes which also brought home 111 merit awards.
