Vu Ngoc Minh and Vu Hong Anh

The elder brother, Minh, twice won a gold medal at International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO) when he was a student at the High School for the Gifted under the Hanoi University of Education.

At the 2001 IMO organized in the US, Minh, who was then in the 11th grade, was the only Vietnamese competitor who won a gold medal.

The brothers Vu Ngoc Minh and Vu Hong Anh from Hai Phong City have had great success at international competitions, as have brothers from other Vietnamese families. 

One year later, at the IMO in the UK, Minh, together with two team members, won a gold medal, becoming one of the few people who have won two gold medals at IMOs.

Minh’s younger brother, Vu Hong Anh, from the Tran Phu High School for the Gifted, won the silver medal at the International Physics Olympiad in 2009 in Mexico.

Minh is now married and lives in the UK, while Anh is in France for his studies.

Most recently, another duo of brothers achieved similar recognition. Pham Duc Anh, an 11th grader at the High School for the Gifted in Natural Sciences under the Hanoi National University, was one of three Vietnamese students winning the gold medal at the 2017 International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO).

Nine years ago, Anh’s elder brother, Pham Anh Tuan, won a bronze medal at the 2008 IChO organized in Hungary. Tuan is now a physician at the Hanoi Medical School Hospital.

Anh will enter the 12th grade after this summer and hopes he can obtain another medal at the next IChO. 

Hai Phong City is the homeland of many excellent students. Nguyen The Trung and Nguyen Trung Tu are from Hai Phong. They both were students at the High School for the Gifted in Natural Sciences under the Hanoi National University and both won silver medals at IMOs. Trung won the medal in 1995 in Canada and Tu in 1999 in Romania.

Trung is now chair and CEO of a firm providing IT solutions and services. He is also chair of the board of directors of STEM Academy. Tu now lives in France and works for an investment fund.

The maternal uncle of the brothers Le Nhu Đường won the bronze medal at the 1978 IMO in Romania. He works for a commercial bank.

Cao Vu Dan, who won the silver medal at the 2000 IMO, and Cao Vu Nhan, who won the gold medal at the 2003 Asian Physics Olympiad, are also brothers and they are from Hai Phong.
