The recipe to win gold in programming Olympics

There’s a famous saying by Roman philosopher Seneca which goes like this: “It is quality rather than quantity that matters.” This quote transcends time and industry and proves that countries such as the United States and India, famous for their huge number of programmers, are lagging behind in terms of quality. Curious to see which countries would take home the gold, silver and bronze medals?
