    It's not like "special olympics" - right? (So far I've only considered mud wrestling.)

    No it's not. It's something like an international competiton in the knowledg of physics(mostly harder examples buth with littel or no calcules). I might get on the national team, but there isn-t much chance of that, becouse there is a 5 per countrz limit.

    It's not really something you can just enter. :wink: It won't be known which HS students will be representing a certain country in the international olympiad until that country's national olympiad is concluded.

    I assume you qualified for the nationals?

    I'm one of 19. Maybe we'll compete against each other at the international olympiad. It's in Spain this year, I believe.
