Competitivie programming in GO?

Is anyone here into competitive programming ? Any collection of tips and tricks for using Go in such events ?

I would appreciate your help.

I used to do a good bit of competitive programming (ACM ICPC, Topcoder, Code Jam, etc) and I am a huge fan of Go, but honestly if your goal is to be super competitive Go probably isn’t the best language choice.

To be clear - if you just want to learn Go better through competitive programming then by all means use Go. You’ll learn a ton. I just personally feel that languages like Java (with their crazy-large standard library) are more useful since they provide all sorts of containers that are commonly needed, like priority queues, big integers, etc.
