The event attracted a total of 28 teams from Asian and Oceanian countries and regions to participate and a total of 11 gold medals, 13 silver medals and 34 bronze medals were awarded.
APhO is the most influential physics competition for pre-university students from Asian and Oceanian countries.
The event is held once a year, with the aim to assist in the preparation of Asian students towards the International Physics Olympiad (IPhO) and build a network among the leaders for further collaborative projects in physics education.
China organized national team to take part since the competition was initiated in 2000.
The Children and Youth Science Center (CYSC) of the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) and the Chinese Physical Society (CPS) jointly selected outstanding middle school students who have keen interest in physics to compete with their Asian peers to show intelligence and make friends.
