Time Event
Fields medals
What happens when a guy refuses to accept his Fields medal? The press does not even mention the names of other Fields winners, as if the refusal is the news, and not the achievement. The most one gets from Washington Post is "three other mathematicians -- another Russian, a Frenchman and an Australian -- also won Fields honors this year".

The people, who received their Fields medals, are Andrei Okounkov, Terence Tao, and Wendelin Werner.
