The 2020 AIAMA Abacus International Olympiad Online Competition and Con-call forum is completed. Over 400 contestants from more than 20 counties competed online at the same time.
We have 4 students participating in age groups B, C, and D. All of them have been well practicing for a while to prepare for the contest. Unfortunately, due to technical problems of the host server, 3 students couldn't smoothly complete the online tests. Our youngest contestant, the 7-year-old Kaniesha Manivannan, was not hit by the technical problems and completed all tests. She achieved at the top 10% score and is the CHAMPION of Group B! This is her another glorious win after getting two champions from the MM Go World Championship 2020 in August!
Way to go, Kaniesha!
