A plane was returning from the Olympic Games with five athletes who placed first through fifth in an event. They made the following statements:

A: "I was not the last"
B: "C was the third"
C: "A was behind E"
D: "E was second"
E: "D was not the first."
On account of modesty or for some other reason, the gold and silver medallists lied. The three worst athletes told the truth.
