The gold medalists are Nguyen Manh Quan and Tran Quang Vinh from the Hanoi-Amsterdam High School for the Gifted, and Trang Dao Cong Minh from the Hanoi National University's High School for the Gifted in Natural Sciences.

Nguyen Trong Thuan from the Lam Son High School for the Gifted in central Thanh Hoa province and Bui Thanh Tan from the Phan Boi Chau High School for the Gifted in central Nghe An province won the silver medals.

In the tally, Viet Nam ranked seventh after the Republic of Korea, China, Russia, the US, Taiwan (China) and Romania.

IPhO 2021 was organised virtually by Lithuania, seeing the participation of 368 candidates worldwide. Last year, IPhO 2020 scheduled to be held in the country was cancelled due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The MoET received official results from the host Portugal on July 23.
