2010 World Problem Solving Champion John Nunn

Hello Everyone,

It had to be him - John Nunn! Who else?

John Nunn has won the World Problem Solving Championship from among 70 contestants including all those young kids armed with computer preparations.

But then, you expect it of him. John Nunn happens to be Oxford's youngest undergraduate since the 15th Century - a feat he managed at the age of 15.

He did a PhD on finite H-spaces, lectured on mathematics, and became one of Britain's strongest chess grandmasters. Read a first person fantastic article by the master himself at

Meanwhile, all we can say is congratulations and wow.
