The Hundred Meters' Run

     Four amateur athletes, gentlemen Anderson, Brown, Caroll, and Davis, organised a competition for themselves in the form of a run for a hundred meters. Unfortunately, the run was held without a judge and after crossing the finishing line, it could be heard:

     - Mr. Anderson claims that Mr. Caroll was the first, and Mr. Brown was the second;
     - Mr. Brown claims that Mr. Caroll was the second and Mr. Davis was the third;
     - Mr. Caroll claims that Mr. Davis was the last, whereas Mr. Anderson was the second;
     - Mr. Davis says nothing and is quiet.

     Each of the sportsmen shared two pieces of information - one was true, the other - false.

     So there is a question: What was the actual order at the finishing line?
