For several years and in many attempts, the title, “over-all champion” had been very elusive for the Philippines. It was only in the Philippine International Mathematics Competitions (PIMC) 2009 held on November 28-December 2, 2009 at Iloilo City, where the Philippines managed to grasp the title for the first time.

Twenty one countries/territories namely: Bulgaria, Brunei Darussalam, China, Cyprus, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Nigeria, Philippines, Romania, Singapore, South Africa, Taiwan and Thailand sent 96 teams to participate in the 2009 Philippine Elementary Mathematics International Competition (PEMIC) and 2009 Asia Inter-cities Teenagers Mathematics Olympiad (AITMO).

The Philippines fielded 10 teams each for PEMIC and AITMO. Using the effective strategy in grouping the RP’s best math wizards, the Philippines ended up champion in the individual and team contests which made it emerge as the over-all champion for garnering a 100 medals consisting of 24 gold, 32 silver and 44 bronze medals.

Three participants in the PEMIC garnered perfect scores. They are Mikaela Angela Uy of St. Jude Catholic School- Manila, Justin Edric Yturzaeta of Jubilee Christian Academy-Quezon City and Theemathas Chirananthavat, a 10-year old delegate from Thailand.

Though it was difficult for the Philippines’ math assets to beat their equals, yet bringing out the best in them and believing on their capability helped greatly to make victory within their reach. The credit belongs to our Filipino kids who fulfilled the Philippines’ dream for the title, Over-all Champion. They are those  who strived valiantly, who knew the great enthusiasm, the great devotion and spent themselves in a worthy fight.

Here are the RP kids who make every Filipino proud for what they have achieved in the 2009 PEMIC and 2009 AITMO in the recently concluded PIMC 2009: Click on this link to see the results.


Dr. Simon Chua, MTG President said, “Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.” Congratulations to all of you!!!
