FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – Wilson High School IB student, Zachary Zhao, has advanced to the semi-finals of the 2016 International German Olympics. Only 14 students are selected out of 260 applicants to move on to the semi-finals. 

The Goethe-Institut Chicago, the official institute of the Federal Republic of Germany, is searching for two Olympic athletes to represent the USA in Berlin next summer.

Participants will be required to prove their knowledge of the German language and culture in a competition with students from 50 different nations. 

Zhao will travel to Chicago on December 4 to participate in the U.S. semi-final round where he will be tested in reading, listening, speaking, writing, and presentation skills.
