This excellent result places Luxembourg at 20th place among 29 participating teams, ahead of countries such as Belgium, Finland, and Norway, although these countries sent a full team of four contestants to the olympiad.
The contest papers were very difficult, and their difficulty was mirrored by the rather low medal cutoffs: 7 marks for bronze, 16 for silver, and 24 for gold.
