By matthew99, history, 10 months ago, In English,

At only age 15, FizzyDavid(Junzhao Yang) reached Legendary Grandmaster on Codeforces Round 459. At post time, he is the youngest person ever to have such an accolade.

His rating is currently 2,955, on par with other top-rated contestants who are many years older than he is.

Congratulations!

First, congrats.

As a schoolmate of Junzhao Yang, I've had several lessons/some training together with him ------ his level is quite incredible(solving several >=Div.1-D-level problems in an amazing speed), especially at such a young age.

Actually he has already won a couple of contests in Chinese OI, but unfortunately, his participation was unofficial due to the current policy.

Hope he will achieve more success in the field of competitive programming(e.g. gain a top rank in IOI) and make contribution to the academic field of computing in the future.

Also hope that I'll achieve his rating before he steps into university...QAQ

[sorry for my poor English :P]

    I think you and FizzyDavid are great and strong programmer.You know that ... in fact I started learning programming in primary school(And now I'm 13).But I didn't study it as hard as you and him.I joined in 31 codeforces contests and finally become blue(expert).Yeah...Being your and FizzyDavid's schoolmate always a unbelievable exprience.Believe in yourself,djq_cpp!After all,you are only 13 and has already been orange(master)!

      Me?

      Although I've learnt competitive programming together with Fizzydavid for several times, the difference between our levels is too big to be measured. And achieving Master, for me, means nothing more than being lucky during contests.

      Emmmmm...I'm going to do some training now...as my level is completely not enough...

        Orange at 13 is pretty impressive, I don't know what the youngest is but yeah that's insane (says the 34 year old blue). Congrats to both of you.

            Considering China's freaky junior weightlifters I'm guessing he's also got a couple of olympic weightlifting medals lying around to go with the IOI ones. You're from Bulgaria so you probably also do.

Suddenly find someone interesting:

FlZZYDAVlD

(actually his username is FlzzyDavld FlzzyDavld and he became grandmaster in the same round)

I'm wondering who he is ---- the only clue I've got is that he was once named red_maker red_maker.

And there are: FizzyDavld FlzzyDavid FizzyOavid

His first contest was in 2014 and as you said he is 15 now. Does he have an expert rating at the age of 11 ? Really !!

        Imagine you are 15 year old guy. And someone in the Internet tells you that you are worse because you didn't lose your virginity. I consider that offensive and inappropriate and that's why I want to stand up to such behaviour.

          Yeah I know that would be offensive in normal cases. But this guy is just 15 years old. I bet 90% of teenagers in his age are still virgin.

          I am just saying that he would be a really cool guy if he does it in the near future. Don't know what's wrong with it ( I mean think about it )

          It seems that you get triggered whenever you read any comment about virginity

          FizzyDavid I didn't mean anything bad, you got LGM and you are 15. it's at least 100 times easier to get a girl into your bed so I was saying just go for it and be a LGM chick magnet

          How did he say that Fizzy is worse because he hasn't lost his vrginity? What I see is that he is just joking about the stereotype that "coders dont get girls." If you think that joke about sex is inapprioprate for 15 year old, it isn't. Maybe you are too old to get these jokes and I wonder why u are so offended by virginity joke :))
