Bursting with emotion when being named at the online award ceremony, Quoc Huy said that his efforts and a little luck helped him win the gold medal at the world finals, and bring glory home for Vietnam. Duc Phat was also "frozen" a bit when he was named at the award ceremony. Thanks to the great support of the organizers, the companionship and encouragement of teachers, family, friends, and my own efforts, I got a medal at the competition.
As a witness and follower of the children from the national tournaments to the world finals, Mr. Doan Hong Nam, Head of the National Organizing Committee, happily shared: "I am extremely touched and proud of the achievements of our contestants at this year's world finals. Their efforts and bravery helped Vietnam once again put its name on the world leaderboard 9 years in a row. The first world gold of Vietnam, this year we achieved the highest achievement at the competition I believe that today's success will lay the foundation for the next generations.
With this achievement, Vietnam is the team that has won the most medals overall among the participating countries this year. The members of the Vietnamese team are all national champions of the 2022 season in different categories. Last year, Nguyen Quoc Huy, a student at Hanoi University of Science and Technology, won a gold medal in the Microsoft Word 2016 category.
