MANILA, Philippines — Filipino young Math wizards topped the 14th International Mathematics Contest (IMC) in Singapore recently dominating 13 other countries. 

The Philippines finished the competition with 196 total medals that includes 27 gold, 53 silver and 116 bronze.

According to the Mathematics Trainers Guild-Philippines (MTG), the Philippines defeated the powerhouse China by two gold medals. 

Based on the overall gold medal tally, the Philippines finished in first place with 27 gold medals followed by China, 25; Taiwan, 13; Vietnam, 12; and Indonesia, 10.

Filbert Ephraim Wu of Victory Christian International School was declared champion in the Grade 7 level for being the top scorer.

Accompanying the students to the contest were MTG president Dr. Isidro Aguilar and vice president Dr. Eduardo Dela Cruz.

Founded in 1995, the MTG is a non-stock, non-profit organization of volunteer mathematics teachers committed to promote excellence in mathematics education as it seeks to develop the analytical thinking and creative skills of the students through intensive trainings.
