International Biology Olympiad (IBO) - 2017 Team USA Two high school students from Texas and one each from California and Massachusetts have been selected by The Center for Excellence in Education (CEE) as gold medalists in the 15th annual USA Biology Olympiad (USABO) National Finals. USABO’s ‘Dream Team’ will represent the United States as Team USA at the International Biology Olympiad (IBO) from July 23-30 in Coventry, United Kingdom. Team USA 2017 Gold Medalists are: Edward Lee of Liberal Arts and Science Academy (LASA), Austin, Texas Alexander Tsao of Troy High School, Fullerton, California Catherine Wang of Lexington High School, Lexington, Massachusetts Thomas Xiong of Seven Lakes High School, Katy, Texas Team USA was chosen from among 20 USABO National Finalists based on practical and theoretical tests that followed 10 days of intensive biology instruction at Marymount University in Arlington, VA. At Marymount, USABO Finalists studied with leading U.S. experts in the fields of cellular & molecular biology, plant anatomy & physiology, animal anatomy & physiology, genetics & evolution, ecology, ethology, and biosystematics. Nearly 10,000 high school students from across the country registered for this year’s USABO. The IBO is an annual competition for pre-university students, ages 14 to 19. All IBO participants place in the top four of their countries’ National Biology Olympiad. Kathy Frame, CEE director of USABO and Special Projects, will accompany Team USA to the U.K. in July. All Team USA Members have medaled in the IBO since the United States first began competing in 2003, garnering a total of 45 gold, nine silver and two bronze medals. At IBO, Team USA has earned no less than two gold medals each year for 14 consecutive years, and has achieved the coveted world #1 ranking in 2011, 2013, and 2015.
