Four Israeli teens won gold, silver and bronze medals at the
International Olympiad in Informatics, held over the course of four days in Brisbane, Australia.
Following its performance, Israel was ranked eighth in the world out of 80
participating teams.

The 25-year-old event highlighting the
achievement of youths in computer science was initiated by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), along with
olympiads in mathematics, chemistry, physics and biology.

Participants had to solve problems by writing
computer programs using algorithms. On the Israeli team, 18-year-old Daniel Hadas won a gold
medal, 17-year-old Tom Kalvari from Kfar Hayarok won two silver medals, and 17-year-old
Ohad Klein and 18-year-old Ron Ribchin each won bronze medals, the
Times of Israel reported.
