Athletic Competition (Posted on 2013-07-08) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Athletic ability was admired by the Minikins, and the annual summer competition of athletic events was eagerly anticipated In one such competition, Ebum, Ekum, Elfum, Epum, Eskum, and Evum were among the competitors. Three of them were entered in each of four events, and each of the four events was won by a different one of the six.

Based on the statements below, which three entered each of the events and who were the four winners?
  1. The winner of the tree climb did not enter the distance run.
  2. Ekum entered the distance run and the tree climb.
  3. The only one of the four events that Evum did not enter was the log lift.
  4. The winner of the spear throw entered one other event.
  5. Eskum, who entered the distance run and one other event, and Elfum were both winners.
  6. Ebum won the only event that he entered.
  7. Epum competed in the tree climb and one other event, which was not the spear throw.
