The American Chemical Society (ACS) is excited to announce that Team USA earned two gold and two silver medals at the 55th International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO), held in Zurich on July 16 to 25.

Pictured above are gold medalists Anurag Sodhi (Maryland) and Phoenix Wu (Seven Lakes High School, Katy, Texas), and silver medalists Mingwen Duan (Connecticut) and Alice Liu (Missouri).

“This was my fourth and final opportunity, as a senior. It was such a uniquely difficult experience,” Wu says. “I would say the in-person experience is unparalleled.” The three prior events he participated in were online only, as a result of pandemic restrictions.

The ACS Greater Houston extends particular congratulations to Mr. Phoenix Wu of Seven Lakes High School for his gold medal performance as a member of Team USA!
