The Kangaroo has arrived in Malaysia!

This Kangaroo :
Kangaroo Math Competition (KMC) is the world's largest mathematics contest, with participation from more than 6 million students from 49 countries in 2012 alone. The Kangaroo, also known as Le Kangourou in French, originated in France in the early 1980s, inspired by the success of a similar contest in Australia (hence, the contest is named after the famed Australian marsupial). The contest is organized by the Association Kangourou san Frontieres (AKSF), based in Paris. Malaysia joined AKSF as a member in 2012.

The KMC consists of one round of multiple choice question paper, which is given at the student's own school. This arrangement allows the maximum number of students to participate. There are no selection rounds or qualifying exam, there is only one paper to be taken by the participants. All participants in the world will write the same test simultaneously.

If you click on History of KMC, you will find this :
"..... Malaysia was unanimously elected to join the AKSF in 2012, at the annual AKSF meeting in Protaras Beach, Cyprus. Mr. Suhaimi Ramly was appointed as the country representative. Mr. Suhaimi is the coach for the national team to the International Mathematical Olympiad since 2007, and has been active with organizing many mathematics camps and competitions in the country...."
Suhaimi Ramly is my brother :)
