South Africa has successfully defended its championship at the
International Student Cluster Competition, winning the overall prize in
Leipzig, Germany.

The announcement was made on 25 June 2014 at the International
Supercomputing Conference. It is the first time a team has won the
competition in consecutive years. The South African team of six was also
the youngest, comprising only undergraduate students.

The High Performance Computing (HPC) Advisory Council Student Cluster
Challenge is an opportunity to showcase the expertise of the world's
brightest computer scientists in a friendly, yet spirited competition.
