PUZZLE 117 Race to the Finish

Puzzle Location: The mayor's chamber (The shield obje on the desk in center)

Five people are talking about a race they ran.
They started off the race in ABCDE order, and then one person sped up and overtook three people one after another.
Then one of the other runners overtook two people, and after that the order did not change.
When they crossed the finish line, E was ahead of B, and D was ahead of A.
Slide the runners' icons onto the winner's podium to show the order in which they finished the race.

Hint 1

Figure out a ranking according to one fact and then compare it against another to see if they tie in with each other.
Start off by looking at who could have overtaken three people in a row.

Hint 2

Let's figure out who overtook three people in a row.
To overtake three people, you need to have three people ahead of you in the first place, which means it must have been D or E.

Hint 3

Continuing on from hint two...
If E was the one who overtook three people, the order would be AEBCD.
But if that were the case, D would not be able to finish ahead of A, so that means that D must have been the one who overtook three people.

Super Hint

Continuing on from hint three...
E finished ahead of B, which means that E must have been the one who overtook two people.
So E overtook two people when the order was DABCE, and that then became the final line-up.
