The Hong Kong team won one gold medal, five silver medals and two bronze medals, as well as a silver award in the team competition.

The contest, which covered mathematics, chemistry, physics and informatics, was held from September 1 to 6, with about 350 students from 45 cities or regions participating in it.

Harris Leung from Diocesan Boys' School and Yuen Lok-kan from Pui Ching Middle School won a gold medal and a silver medal in the informatics competition.

Jeff Kwan from St Paul's Co-educational College and Lau Sze-chun from Diocesan Boys' School each won a silver medal in physics.

In chemistry, Yip Yan-ming from Po Leung Kuk Centenary Li Shiu Chung Memorial College and Chow King-ngai from La Salle College each nabbed a silver medal.

Sheremeta Daniel Weili from Hong Kong International School and Bruce Xu from West Island School each won a bronze medal in mathematics.

Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung congratulated the Hong Kong team on their outstanding performance.

"The remarkable results achieved by the Hong Kong team this year demonstrated our students' great potential in science, technology and mathematics as well as excellent problem-solving skills.”

Mr. Yeung said the Government injected an additional HK$800 million (US$102.56 million) into the Gifted Education Fund in March to encourage more organizations to provide diversified off-school advanced learning programs for gifted students.

“We expect that in the new school year, more high-quality learning opportunities could be provided for gifted students to help them further develop their potential in different areas," he added.
