 Note: due to two conflicting reports it has not been confirmed which of the 
       North Korean teams was the senior national team.
       The more detailed report suggests that the senior national team were 
       runners-up, and that the junior national team won the tournament.
       The less detailed report refers to the teams only as North Korea "A" 
       (winners) and "B" (losers).
