Wu, like his predecessor last year for the same title, is a "Mathlete" – in fact, the youngest ever in the 26-year-history of the national math bee, the MATHCOUNTS National Competition. In July, Wu went to the White House for a ceremony in recognition of his academic honor.
"Receiving the Relly at school was a surprise," said Wu. "Since I am only in seventh grade, I want to keep competing and look forward to the opportunity of coming back to the show and hopefully winning this honor again."
