Yesterday I received the news that 2 of our students will be representing Mexico in 2 international Math contests. Manuel Guillermo Lopez Buenfil will be representing Mexico at the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO 2008) next July in Spain, and Manuel Enrique Dosal Bustillos will be representing Mexico at the Centroamerican Mathematical Olympiad in Honduras. Both students are high school students from Ciudad Juarez (for the Geography-impaired, Juarez is the Mexican city that borders with El Paso, Texas), the Mathematical Olympiad is one of my hobbies, I have been involved in the Olympiad since 1991, some friends and I have a pretty good team to prepare students for the National contests in Mexico, we do it for free, because of our love to solve challenging Math problems and working with gifted students, and we are very happy with such fantastic results and very proud of "our boys". This is for them, hoping they can bring home those Gold Medals.
