8th place for the Bonn team at the IMC - outstanding achievements by Jonas Walter

Bonn, 04.08.2020. This year, we again sent a team from Bonn to participate in the International Mathematics Competition for University Students (IMC). The tournament did not as usual take place in Bulgaria, but happened digitally this year because of COVID-19. We, the HCM, naturally and as every year supported the Bonn team financially and logistically. The participants met up in the HIM for two days while observing the distance and hygiene regulations. The team leader Lucas Mann supervised the six Bonn students Ferdinand Wagner, Nuno Hultberg, Jonas Walter, Sebastian Meyer, Iris Hebbeker and Martin Drees. The results are something to be proud of: five first prizes and one third prize in the individual ranking as well as the eighth place in the team ranking! A special highlight is Jonas Walter’s shared 16th place in the overall ranking of a total of 546 participants as well as Iris Hebbeker’s accomplishments: Only one single female student achieved better results. While the sensational results of second place for the Bonn team from last year could not be repeated, all participants can be very proud of their results. The Israeli national team won this years ICM, while the teams from St. Petersburg State University and Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology won second and third place respectively.
