Oh Great, Now The Chinese Pass the CMA Exam Better Than We Do

And it's probably just a matter of time before they start winning all the Elijah Watt Sells awards. Here's the ICMA with the spectacular news:

Of the approximately 4,200 individuals who took the two-part CMA exam during the September/October 2011 testing period, medals were awarded to the following individuals for their exceptional performance:
 
  • Wen Zhou, of Shanghai, People’s Republic of China, received the ICMA Gold Medal for achieving the highest exam score.
  • Michael Clark, of Coal Valley, Ill., received the ICMA Silver Medal for achieving the second-highest exam score.
  • Daniel A. Bennett, of Atlanta, Ga., received the ICMA Bronze Medal for achieving the third-highest exam score.

Step it up, people. I'm not going to say it again.
