    The 2018 International Olympiad in Biology was held in Iran.
    (The USA did not participate.)

    Taiwan's media has boasted of Taiwan finishing tied for first with China
    in the informal team competition. The top individual was a Vietnamese.

    At the 2018 International Biology Olympiad, 27 students won gold medals.
    (The USA boycotted this event in Iran.)

    Team Number of Members (out of 4) who won gold medals
    China 4 (all finished in the top 13 individuals)
    Taiwan 4
    Vietnam 3
    Singapore 3
    Russia 3
    UK 3
    Iran 2
    Poland 1
    Korea (South) 1
    Switzerland 1
    Turkey 1
    Germany 1

    It may be interesting to note that the UK did much better in the biology Olympiad than the mathematics Olympiad.
    One of the British gold medal winners was female, Rebecca Jane Marrow.
    (Biology tends not be as male-dominated as mathematics.)
