The last but not the least interesting team is ITMO University's team 1.

ITMO has most championship titles, 5, out of 19 finals they participated in. They've got 10 Gold medals total, 1 Silver and 1 Bronze.

This year team consist of 2 Bronze Medalist from 2014, Borys and Artem, and World Champion from 2013, Gennady. Team is on first place in OpenCup Standings, won numerous contest this year and universally regarded as favorite to win World Finals, are coached by Andrey Stankevich.

Gennady Korotkevich (TC: 3794, CF: 3407) is one of the most honored coders ever. ACM ICPC Champion in 2013, TCO Winner in 2014, GCJ Winner in 2014, IOI Gold Medalist for a whooping 6 years (2007-2012), that's in addition to SIlver (2006) and many more achievements like Facebook Hacker Cup wins.

Borys Minaiev (TC: 2760, CF: 2776) won Bronze in last year Finals, was TopCoder Open Semifinalist in 2014, Facebook Hacker Cup Finalsit in 2015 and got 3rd place in Kotlin Challenge in 2014.

Artem Vasilyev (TC: 2612, CF: 2545) got World Finals Bronze in 2014 and was KROK Finalist in 2013.

It would be really unlikely for ITMO not to win Gold Medals, I have their chances at 99%. I think their chances to win is about 75%.

This is University where I was admitted back in 1998 but sadly didn't go there. So will be supporting it during the contest.

    interesting comment, I have two questions, I hope you can answer: 1. why you could not study at ITMO? 2. Where did you study?

      It was not about choosing the best University for Coding, it was also about choosing best carier for life, so I went to University of Economics and Finance, to become International Finance guy, not programmer.

      But in summer 1998 I was admitted to both Universities and had to chose by September. It's more like thinking about alternative chain of events — "whatif" type nostalgie. :)

        despite having studied other career, you have not abandoned the programing, that's good :)

Is it OK that the sum of all probabilities to win Gold Medals is more than 300%?
