Just like 8-year-old Zac Harvey Gordula whom Up Daily reported earlier, Elean Ramos Almazan also won two golds in the competition plus a trophy. The two participated in the Singapore Math Global Team Competition, known simply as 2019 Singa, held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam from November 22 to 26.

It was definitely an amazing achievement for the Grade 11 student who studies at Holy Rosary College in Sta. Rosa City, Laguna. While he had to spend his birthday away from his family, his dad revealed that this was not the first time it happened.

Back when Elean was younger, he also spent a birthday away from his family. At the time, he was in Grade 6 and had to attend the International Mathematics and Science Olympiad in Cavite. This is truly a brilliant young man!
