Cyberlympics 2012 Finals

I hope it's still not too late, but I wanted to post about the Cyberlympics Finals. So it's been almost three weeks from now that our team (gula.sh) went to Miami, and played the last CTF round of the competition.

We had a long flight to the USA, and I was very excited, since I left Europe for the first time.

As second team in the 3rd Round, we had to fight in a preliminary round with other teams from other regions and only the winner of the preliminary round was allowed to participate in the finals.

Fortunately, after 3 hours of fighting, we got the first place in the qualification round and moved into the finals!

Cyberlympics Qualification round results:
  1. gula.sh - Hungary
  2. TeamNaija - Nigeria
  3. Deloitte LATCO - South America
Here's a nice picture of us, after getting into the finals (I have no idea what made me smile like that... ):


Being warmed up already, we played for 6 hours in the finals. It was quite challenging, and we ended up as 2nd runner ups! :)

Cyberlympics Finals results:

  1. hack.ers - Netherlands
  2. UMUC Cyber Padawans - USA
  3. gula.sh - Hungary
  4. FSTeam - Brazil
  5. magpies - Austraila
  6. PRAUDITORS - Hungary
  7. TeamNaija - Nigeria
  8. WhiteHat - Sri Lanka
We got this nice medal here (I stole this from András' Facebook wall, hope he doesn't mind):


We also got 500 bucks which is also nice, even if you split it into 6 :P. The most important thing was that we had a great time preparing and playing and learned a lot of new stuff! :)

After the competition we've celebrated our victory, and spent a couple days with exploring Miami and the Everglades.

After coming back, we got our 15 minutes of fame giving TV interviews (sry, only in Hungarian):


Radio interviews (also in Hungarian):


And Internet sites:

Thanks everyone for your support! Next posts will be about Round 2 and 3 and after that, the Finals in details. Stay tuned! :)
