What is your Topcoder story?
I read a thread from the forum of ZheJiang University at the end of 2004, which featureed Standlove's story at Topcoder. From then on I've competed in Topcoder in many tracks. Recently I still compete but mostly only in Marathon. This will be my 8th Marathon final onsite.
You can always learn many things from competing with others, and try your best to do a certain task contains a lot of joy.
Tell us about something in your life, outside of Topcoder, that you are most proud of.
In 2002 I got 100,000 yuan(about $15,000) by guessing matches results of World Cup South Korea/Japan.
