The foreign ministry's National Committee for Overseas Vietnamese yesterday handed a certificate of merit to student Le Anh Dung for outstanding academic achievements in the Czech Republic.
Dung gained a silver medal at the 52nd International Mathematics Olympiad last July in the Netherlands. Three of his five team-mates in the Czech team received bronze medals.
Dung previously won a first prize in a National Mathematics Competition in the Czech Republic, where he has been living with his family for five years.
Dung said he wished to become a professional mathematician. — VNS
