After facing a series of long tests and training camps, OSK 2008, OSP 2008, OSN 2008, Pelatnas I-III 2009, Pelatnas II-III 2010, finally I am selected to be one of TOKI (Indonesia Computing Olympiad) 2010 Big Four! That means I and the other 3 students will represent Indonesia in IOI 2010, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
The big four of TOKI 2010 are:
1. Alham Fikri Aji, from SMAN 1 Depok
2. Ashar Fuadi (me), from SMAN 1 Bogor
3. Christianto Handojo, from SMA Kolese Kanisius Jakarta
4. Harta Wijaya, from SMA St. Thomas 1 Medan
I am so proud I can make this far. Competing in IOI is my dream since high school, and, after 2 years, this dream comes true.
By the way, those big four were all last year’s veteran! Christianto was IOI 2009 contestant, while Alham, Harta and I were last year’s training camp participants. It is so unfortunate that no newcomers are selected this year.
Brian Marshal: “2009 Plovdiv, Bulgaria: 2 silvers + 1 bronze. 2010 Waterloo, Canada: ? Please discuss what you want to write there, hehe :-p”
Ilham Kurnia: “Gold? hehehe. Lots of work ahead then.”
Many friends are supporting us :). We hope to make the best for the upcoming IOI. Viva TOKI, Go Get Golds!
