At the Olympic Games (5) (Posted on 2004-08-30) Difficulty: 3 of 5
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?

By saying the first 2 statements are entirely true your are also saying the last is wholly inaccurate.

This cannot be the case, because each statement is an and/or so at least one part of each must be true.
