Both my parents (well before they met each other) were at the International Chemistry Olympiad in I think Bucharest in '80-something. I've never really asked them about the language issues involved, or how they qualified, but maybe now I will :-) .

<SNIP> Not to mention that the US would get absolutely obliterated...

Note that the people on these teams may live in the U.S., but the participant's true ethnicities may be Asian or Western European/Russian. Here is one of the examples: US Physics Olympiad team 2008 - Tucker Chan, Edward Gan, Joshua Oreman, Danny Zhu, and Rui Hu. Only one non-asian, just saying :|
2010 States: 1st Astronomy, 1st Remote Sensing
2010 Nationals: 3rd Astronomy, 5th Remote Sensing
2011 States: 1st Astronomy, 2nd Wind Power, 5th Fossils
2011 Nationals: 1st Astronomy, 6th Wind Power
2012 States: 1st Astronomy, 1st Remote Sensing, 3rd Chemistry Lab

One small problem (Correct me if I'm wrong): I believe that the US is the only country that does Science Olympiad! (Although there may be teams from Canada occasionally)
there's at least one team in Mexico...they compete in TX every year

that's interesting....is it like some sort of school with kids with strong US ties? or are they mexican natives with very good english skills?
