1st Indian to win 3 gold medals at International Mathematical Olympiad

Indian students have been bringing laurels to the nation by winning the international Olympiads, especially in these recent years. The latest addition to this league is 18-year-old Pranjal Srivastava who is the first Indian to win three gold medals at the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) held in Oslo on July 11 and 12, 2022. Pranjal’s name appears in the IMO hall-of-fame, as only 11 people in the 63-year history of IMO have won more medals than him. Pranjal won this year’s International Mathematical Olympiad with a total of 34. He achieved the gold medal first in 2019 scoring 35, then in 2021 with a score of 31. India did not participate in IMO in 2020 due to the Covid pandemic. His winning streak started in 2018 when he earned a silver medal.
