A team of four students representing Hong Kong achieved excellent results in the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI) 2021, winning one gold medal and three silver medals. A total of 88 countries or regions from all over the world participated in this year's IOI, the 33rd event, which is the most recognised worldwide computer science competition aimed at secondary students under 20 years of age.

Of the top 10, 8 are ethnic Chinese, and the other 2 are Japanese and Korean. I.e. 100% East Asian ethnicity.
This is another fine illustration that if US truly wants to decouple, it would end up losing many of their best people in STEM. They would be hard pressed to execute decoupling without creating an anti-Asian atmosphere. After all, it is not easy to tell a Chinese from a Japanese or Korean.
