It was logical that four asian countries (Japan, Korea, Laos and Malaysia) should be the judo finalists, but I couldn’t learn the relative standings.
A reporter told me “Laos won silver, and/or Malaysia won bronze.” Other reporter added “Japan won gold, and/or Korea won bronze.” A third one added “Laos won gold, and/or Japan won silver.”
I couldn’t make heads or tails out of this, until I remembered that in judo, two bronze medals are awarded. Which were the standings?
(see at the bottom) for this fact.
I originally thought to post the problem without this explanation, but it seemed too "tricky"...
