I have heard many say that being able to solve Olympiad problems is by no means a prerequisite to becoming a good mathematician, physicist, etc. However, would one benefit from practicing math competition problems if he is older, i.e. undergrad level and on. Would there be any benefit to the person by being able to solve the problems in unrelated fields or for solving unrelated problems as a researcher or on an unrelated exam?
