Roni Edwin, a 16-year-old student of the Ghana International School has become the first Ghanaian student to win a medal at the International Math Olympiad.
According to a report by Gis.edu.gh, the brilliant schoolboy won a bronze medal in the competition and his score was the highest in the whole of Africa.
Edwin has registered his name as the first Ghanaian to reach that feat since the inception of the International Math Olympiad, the most prestigious maths competition in the world, 61 years ago.
A post sighted by Briefly.co.za on the verified Facebook handle of US Embassy Ghana confirms that this year's competition was held in St Petersburg, Russia and attracted 616 top high school mathematicians from 105 countries.
See the post below:
Since 2016, the US Embassy in Ghana has partnered with MISE Foundation, Ghana to fund the maths Olympiad training programme for top high school mathematicians in Ghana and Roni is a direct beneficiary of all these training programmes.
In 2019, Roni Edwin won an award (honorable mention) at the UK International Mathematical Olympiad and was also the youngest winner of the Ghana Math Olympiad at age 13 in 2017 and went on to tie first place on the geometry exam with a perfect score.
He was also the overall winner of the Ghana Math Olympiad 2018 and 2019, becoming the only student to win the competition back to back. No wonder he made an impression on the world stage.
