At the Olympic Games (3) (Posted on 2003-10-13) Difficulty: 3 of 5
After the weight lifting event, the announcer said “Either Holland was better than Italy, or Greece won gold.”

An Italian reporter heard that, and commented that even knowing his own country’s final place, he wasn’t able to deduce the other places.

Curiously, a Dutch reporter who knew Holland’s final place, and who hadn’t heard the other reporter, made exactly the same remark.

Which were the final places?
