CARMEL, Ind. (WISH) - Carmel soccer teams boasts a lot of talented student-athletes, but one brings new meaning to the term.
Senior soccer player David Liang is one of the smartest kids in the world, when it comes to chemistry.
“We're not talking Carmel or Indianapolis. We're talking about the entire world,” said Carmel head soccer coach Shane Schmidt. “To try and wrap my mind around that is a bit boggling.”
This past summer, Liang went to Moscow for the U.S. Chemistry Olympiad, where high school students from around the world test their chemistry skills in a series of tests and lab work; he was one of four American students chosen from a pool of 12,000 nationwide. The U.S. team came home with a gold medal.
“It was amazing,” said Liang. “You get to see Moscow. I actually got to play a game of soccer over there with some other countries.”
Liang doesn’t know where he wants to go to college, but he’s being courted to study chemistry at some of the country’s top universities.
