Four Vietnamese students attending the 2020 International Biology Olympiad hold the national flag in Hanoi, August 2020.

The competition was originally supposed to be held in Nagasaki, Japan, in mid-July, but the Covid-19 pandemic and resultant travel restrictions meant organizers had to host it online.

Contestants had to take two theoretical and practical tests each, and were monitored on closed-circuit cameras. They took the tests on August 11-12 at the University of Science in Hanoi.

Last year Vietnam won one silver and three bronze medals in Hungary.

Vietnamese students have been doing well in international contests this year.

Last month all four Vietnamese contestants won gold medals in the International Chemistry Olympiad, the country’s best ever performance.

Last week they also won one gold, four silvers and one bronze at the International Informatics Olympiad.
