Comrades marathon 2009: Finisher stats

The most interesting stat from Comrades marathon, 2009 (picked up from Comrades forums). This displays the medals people received versus the actual seeding/group with which they started the race. The box in green below looks most attractive to me for the best chance to do a bronze. That is the D seeding (sub 4 hour marathon qualifier), and the next best one is the F (sub 4:20 marathon qualifier).
