i am from malaysia, where there is lack of training for maths olympiad and the only one out there is far too expensive (arounds hundreds of ringgit) . To compensate this fact, i bought a locally written book about the basics of maths olympiad and it did not do any mercy to my maths interest either. for one year i have trying to learn some basic olympiad level mathematics without an success until i have reaches a breaking point. i excelled in high school maths but cant understand olympiad mathematics because of lack of idea on how to study it. i have since left high school now doing my A-level so i don't have much chance in getting any recognition in the olympiad but i still feel like want to learn some of it. This one fact really discourage me from taking maths as a degree in university cause i wonder whether it is possible to be an accomplished mathematician without being able to do any olympiad while in high school. i find that trying to get knowledge about my maths olympiad is a waste of time if you are not "born genius".
