The other two gold medals were claimed by Oros Vlad Ștefan from the "Grigore Moisil" Theoretical High School in Timișoara and Dragomir Darius Andrei, a student at the Bucharest International Theoretical High School of Informatics.
Meanwhile, Mirică Ioan Alexandru and Tudose Rareș Felix, both from the Bucharest International Theoretical High School of Informatics, grabbed the two silver medals.
