yes, we have 4 rounds
, though this year the last 6 had to fight hard a little bit to really find the 4 best...so you could say there were 5 rounds...
I don't know about the IMChO, could you tell smth about it?
We have 13 years of education, and in some parts of germany only 12...I think all teammembers are in the last grade (richtig??).
Good luck to Putau Aleksei
...but maybe he is not first this time...who knows? Our best German, who participated last year and got a Gold medal, participated this year too, but is unfortunately not in the team...
(Tut mir leid für dich Henry! Und für all die anderen, die es trotz Mühen auch nicht so weit geschafft haben, wie sie es sich erhofft hatten...)
