Dan-Stefan Eniceicu and Razvan-Octavian Radu won the gold medals, while Robert-Iulian Raveanu, Tudor Costel Cretu, and Andrei-Catalin Raduc won the silver medals.
“During 2015-2016 school year, through Hai la Olimpiada! program, we continued to support the preparation of the national teams of Informatics, Mathematics and Physics for international competitions. These results are neither episodic nor accidental, but are the expression of will and of community efforts that children can prepare and be above average, under the guidance of valuable teachers. The 15 medals are the exponents of this community, which still manages to have exceptional results in a system whose overall results are becoming weaker. We congratulate the students and the teachers for the very good results and assure them that we will continue to support them”, said Tudor Vlad, President of eMAG Foundation for Education.
“BCR congratulates the outstanding performance of the International Olympics and thanks everyone for their work, their passion and determination. We are proud to support the young talents that will write the future of Romania and we believe that investment in education and the support we offer to children and young people who want to do performance is a solid investment in the future. We believe that today’s young people have potential to be those tomorrow’s leaders and models that Romania needs. We will continue to support them because we all need talented young people and inspirational role models, that will contribute to the development of a competitive society, based on values and work related principles, determination and performance tracking”, said Ionut Stanimir, Communication Director of BCR.
Hai la Olimpiada! is a program initiated by eMAG Foundation in 2012 and supported by BCR starting 2014.
