Lisa Sauermann wiped the floor with all you pathetic men, including your idols Mihai Manea and Gabriel Carroll (his rank is so low I have to use the search feature)
It's official! Women is better at math.

Actually saw the youtube video interview of her at the Amsterdam IMO. She is fairly attractive, probably top quartile of female economists.
Sad everything about women comes down to looks. She is likely 2x or more intelligent than the most intelligent person who has ever posted on here.

The only reason she has 5 medals is because it took her 5 times to get a perfect score.
I think there's an economist at Princeton who got a perfect score the first time and stopped going.
Anyway, if you look at the overall stats there are around 92% males each year among the competitors, so this certainly isn't convincing proof that women are better at math.

at math puzzles? how do you measure 2x? maybe on a really hard math test she would do better (or at least on par) than anyone who has ever posted here but this does not imply her research will change the world. she could burn out like many mathematicians before her. winning imo is neither a necessary or sufficient condition for being a great academic.

Being good at solving math puzzles is not a signal that you're good at research (in any discipline). In fact these endeavors are somewhat exclusionary. If you spent a lot of time in your childhood learning how to solve math puzzles, as I did, that's less time to think about other kinds of problems or to learn about history and society.

I can believe you guys are jealous of IMO medalists. I honestly regard this kind of giftedness a curse. I wont a couple medals and I regret all that. I spent my youth and the best years of my life solving math puzzles that no one gives a rat ass about. Worst, there is strong pathdependence effect here and once you get into these competitions, you are probably marked for life, and not in a good way.
I urge you to not push your kids, no matter how bright they are, to do this. Let them use their mathematical giftedness in other more productive and sociable ways. Don't let them or become yourself a isolated weirdo like myself who only fit in an university math department. I wish I could have chosen not to be born with this ability. It made my ife miserable and still does.

Welp, time to scrap the prelims then.Being good at solving math puzzles is not a signal that you're good at research (in any discipline). In fact these endeavors are somewhat exclusionary.
