Iran's student team has acquitted itself honorably at the 64th International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO 2023). 

The six-strong Iranian delegation won as many medals during the event, which was hosted by the Japanese city of Chiba earlier in July.

The delegation comprised Ehsan Heydari, Mohammad Urmia-Qasseri, Sobhan Aram, Arvin Taheri, Mohammad-Parsa Ja'farnezhadi, and Pouria Rahmani.

Heydari won the gold medal for the Islamic Republic, while Urmia-Qasseri, Aram, Taheri, and Ja'farnezhadi each earned a silver medal, and Rahmani took the bronze medal.

Delegations hailing from as many as 104 countries partook in the event. Teams representing China, South Korea, and the United States came respectively first, second, and third.

The plane returning the Iranian students is expected to touch down at the capital Tehran's Imam Khomeini International Airport on Friday when they are expected to receive a warm welcome on the part of the country's educational authorities.

The Iranian student team came eighth in the Olympiad's previous edition, which was held in Norway last year, after earning three gold medals and two silver medals.
