Bagging one gold, two silver and one bronze medal, Iranian students ranked sixth in the 40th International Chemistry Olympiad, which was held in Budapest, Hungary, in July.

The International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) is an annual academic competition for high school students.

The first IChO was held in Prague, Czechoslovakia, in 1968. The event has been held every year since then, with the exception of 1971.

Ebrahim Kianmehr, Mahin Jabal Ameli (Ms) and Mohammad Bahrami led the Iranian student team as supervisors and observers. The Iranian students had won the 10th place in the previous world chemistry Olympiad.
