The International Math Olympiad is considered the most prestigious math competition in the world.

This year’s competition attracted 616 top high school mathematicians from 105 countries.

The first Olympiad was held in 1959 in Romania, with seven countries participating.

It has gradually expanded to over 100 countries from five continents.
