Fiziko - mathematical lycee 239 that in street Kirochnoj, waits from Heavenly Empire for triumphers - ninth-grader Dmitry Krachuna and eleventh-grader Dmitry Egorov. Children as a part of Russian national team have defeated on the open mathematical Olympic Games China. And Krachun became the absolute leader and in personal offset: he has solved all problems.

- the Guy has typed the maximum quantity of points, - the trainer of children in a mathematical circle Andrey Vorobev has told. - in our national team such result is reached for the first time. Chineses - yes, typed the maximum point, and till now it was not possible to ours.

Dima Krachun - the youngest in group from which are engaged Andrey Vorobev and Dmitry Itsikson. It for two years is more younger the others.
