Well there are great programmers across all over the world, i have huge respect for them.But still i want to know how Chinese programmers become red with in very few contests, what is main reason apart from hard/smart work, or they practice their own programming websites before coming to CF

Chinese people have the highest IQ in the world.

    It also has to do with how they are pushed (by parents or their education system idk) to study subjects like Maths from a very young age in comparison to other countries.

    The average Chinese student would not be on Codeforces, using average IQs here is irrelevant. Still that wouldn't be the main factor as seen in https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/91237.

I think a lot of them do a lot of practice on other places and are pretty good when they start cf.

But every so often I click on one of their rating graphs and see that they went from true master (i.e. they were around master level in a lot of contests, similar to how I am right now) to like international grand master or lgm in a matter of months, and that's extremely surprising for me -- I want to know how they do it too :) Share your tips please :P

      Yeah, maybe there's some OJ that they use which has really good problems for growth/learning, but it's probably just a combination of working hard and working smart at the end of the day -- informatics culture is pretty advanced there (I could be wrong about this) so with a lot of people being really good alongside you and there to give you tips/help probably helps a lot with improvement. They might have figured out the meta of training for cp efficiently (although this might just be a stupid conclusion).

      Entertaining the idea of them getting super good from some secret OJ training sounds pretty cool too; it's very enigmatic :P or maybe I'm just childish haha
