Ana Paula Jiménez Díaz, a 17-years-old student won the gold medal at the European Girls' Mathematical Olympiad 2019, which took place in Kiev, Ukraine last week.

Her teammates, Nuria Sydykova Méndez and Karla Rebeca Munguía Romero both won silver medals, and Nathalia del Carmen Jasso Vera received an Honorable Mention.

This is the second time a Mexican girl wins a gold medal at the event. In 2016, Olga Medrano won a gold medal at the same event.

Over 200 students from 49 different countries attended the European Girls' Mathematical Olympiad, where the Mexican team was positioned in the 10th place.

Interior Minister Olga Sánchez Cordero and Mexico's National Science and Technology Council congratulated the students on their achievement.
