At the Olympic Games (6) (Posted on 2004-09-27) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Argentine, Brazil, Colombia, Dominican Republic and Equator competed at the Olympic Games, placing first through fifth in an event. They said:

Argentine: "I was not last."
Brazil: "Canada got the bronze."
Canada: "Argentine ended behind Equator."
Dominican Republic: "Equator got silver."
Equator: "Dominican Republic didn't get gold."

The gold and silver winners lied, but the other three told the truth. How did the event end?

Hi Andrea,

I am guessing by your profile that you are kind of new here. As you spend more time on this site, you will see that we are a pretty open minded group. We try not to bash other people, no matter how lame or arrogant they may seem, though we might politely point out that some of the things they said were offensive. While I am not defending him in any way, and while I might even agree with you, your comment could be considered to be just as insulting as his were. I donít think you wanna go to that level :)

Youíll see that there is a wide range of flooblers (or is it perplexurs now?) here. This means that you will probably come across ones like this that don't suit your tastes, but hopefully you will find some really fun ones that will entertain you!

Also, and this is just an FYI, the "No Solution Yet" area is where the author of the puzzle posts the "official" solution. So someone could post a correct and fully explained solution and the page will still say "No Solution Yet" until the author posts his/her solution, which might be a couple weeks.

Have fun!

PS: By the way, I donít speak for the site, just myself. Just spreading around a little "Canít we all just get along" :)
