Apparently Osama Yagi received the Bronze medal at the International Physics Olympiad held in Denmark. His colleague, Ghadeer Shabaan, got honorable mention. This according to SANA, the Syrian government news wire. We have Syrian winners at the International Physics Olympiads.
The Arabic news item did not mention in what discipline and who else has won. However, Times of Israel website mentioned on July 12 that five Israelis received the Gold in the Computer Programming discipline.
There were also many Americans who won.
Congratulations to all. Well done.
Now, we need to get the young Yagi and Shaaban into the US until Syria settles and the war ends. Both will have access to tremendous R&D facilities, which we hope they will put to some peaceful use one day.
