Russian national team trained at MIPT wins two gold and three silver medals at EuPhO

On June 25, the European Physics Olympiad ended, where the Russian national team one five medals. The olympiad was held in a distributed format, the team solved the problems of theoretical and practical rounds at MIPT — at its "training base".

Five eleventh graders from Moscow, the Moscow Region, St. Petersburg and the Sverdlovsk Region were selected to represent Russia at the European Physics Olympiad, and all of them showed brilliant results:

  • Daniil Zhitov (gold)

  • Timur Pryadilin (gold)

  • Anzhelika Buskina (silver)

  • Alexander Raskatov (silver)

  • Daniil Koblov (silver)


The national team in physics is traditionally trained by professors of the MIPT Curriculum Laboratory for Engaging Gifted Students. The team was led by Mikhail Osin and Vitaly Shevchenko.

"This year, the national team that defended the honor of Russia at EuPhO was formed only according to the results of the final stage of the All-Russian Olympiad of School Students in physics among eleventh graders. Why did we do this? In the finals of the All-Russian Olympiad of School Students, a team for the Asian Physics Olympiad (APhO) was already formed (as it was proved later, the strongest). That is why we wanted to provide other eleventh graders an opportunity to prove themselves at an international competition. Until now the finals of the All-Russian Olympiad were only for enrolling a university without entrance exams, and now, we hope, there will be an additional incentive," commented Vitaly Shevchenko, the team leader of the Russian team in physics, head of the MIPT Department for Pre-university Training.

Congratulations to the winners and the team leaders of the Russian national team!
