I'd like to wish my heartfelt congratulations to the team, the
trainers and the IMO 2008 Committee for their hard work. This is by
far the best result for Malaysia in the IMO.

Special congratulations to Loke Zhi Kin for the first ever Silver
medal. This is the first Silver medal for Malaysia not only in IMO,
but in any international science olympiad.

This will be my last dispatch from Madrid (to those who received my
earlier dispatches). Stay tuned for my observer reports to be sent in
due time.

Till then, take care.

Signing off,
