For a finite metric space V with a metric ρ, let Vn be the metric space in which the distance between (a1, . . ., an) and (b1, . . ., bn) is the sum ∑ni=1 ρ(ai, bi). We obtain an asymptotic formula for the logarithm of the maximum possible number of points in Vn of distance at least d from a set of half the points of Vn, when n tends to infinity and d satisfies d ≫ √n.
