2009 IOL OzCLO Report

The Australian team, Ross McGachey (Year 12), Krysia Choros (Year 11) and Sarah Twomey (Year 9), has just come back from the 7th International Olympiads in Linguistics, held in Poland. This year, 23 teams representing 17 countries participated in the IOL/IOL and, along with Ireland, Great Britain and India, this was the first time that Australia was represented. The team did quite well for a first effort but even more importantly they really enjoyed the competition — both individual and team events — and they had a great time with the students from so many other countries in the excursions in and around Wroclaw.
