# 2 Filipinos Win Gold and Bronze Medal in 2014 CWMO

In 2014 China West Mathematical Olympiad (CWMO) held at Jiu Ling Po District, ChongQing Province, China on August 14 – 18, 2014. 2 young Filipinos won the Gold and silver medal as they fight against other brightest kids around the world. Clyde Westley Ang won the Gold medal and his partner  Albert John Palupat won the bronze medal.

Clyde Westley Ang a grade 9 from Chiang Kai Shek College is also one of the honorable mentions in the recently concluded 2014 International Mathematical Olympiad. His partner John Albert Palupat grade 8 from Holy Rosary College is one of the gold medalists in Korea Mathematics International Competition held in Daejeon County, Korea in July this year.

This year, there are 210 contestants from China, Indonesia, Hongkong, Macau, Singapore, Malaysia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Philippines. 33 bagged the gold medal, 47 got silver medal, and the other 66 were bronze medalists.

The contest was held for two consecutive days. 4 hard problems in day 1 from algebra, geometry and number theory and 2 harder problems in day 2.

Here is one of the problems in day 1:

Given a positive integer n.Let $a_1,a_2,\ldots,a_n$ be a sequence of nonnegative integers.Sequence of one or consecutive terms of $a_1,a_2,\ldots,a_n$ is called dragon if their arithmetic mean is bigger than 1.If a sequence is a dragon,then its first term is the head and the last term is the tail.Suppose $a_1,a_2,\ldots,a_n$ is the head or/and tail of some dragon sequence,determine the minimum value of  $a_1+a_2+\ldots+a_n$  in terms of n.

Dr. Simon Chua, the president of Mathematics Trainer’s Guild is only person that accompanied the two contestants in the contest. In the official website of mtg, he expressed his satisfaction about the performances of his trainees and said It’s one’s aptitude, not just the attitude that determines one’s ultimate altitude”.

As year passed by, our young Math Whizzes is continuously by bagging awards in international math olympiads. I am looking forward to a Gold medal in 2015 International Mathematical Olympiad.
