North Korea was accused yesterday by rival teams of entering under-age girls at the Asian Games. A Games gymnastics official said there had been complaints that some members of their women's artistic gymnastics team appeared to be as young as 11, well below the minimum age limit of 16. North Korea was banned from the 1993 World Championships when it was found that one of its medallists had been registered with three different birthdates in three different tournaments.

Dominique Moceanu, who became the youngest American ever to win an Olympic gold medal in gymnastics in 1996, is returning to court to have a restraining order against her father made permanent.
