It is the first time Romanian team takes part in the Olympiad. Four students and a team leader, the teacher of one of the team members, had to fly to Moscow and spend 7 hours at the airport. 'It was the most tearing part', says Bogdan Gulie.
"I didn't know if there was an international round, so I googled it and when I found IEO, I thought, 'Oh, maybe I can apply'. But I didn't have results then for my national olympiad, which was on presentations, so I waited. For that olympiad I made a project about the oil market. And after winning a third prize, I thought, 'Maybe now I have a chance to apply".
"This is my first time in Russia but I always wanted to visit it. It was pretty interesting for me. I can't wait to get into the city and see the streets and the music places".
