Emilio runs at 8m/s and Miguel runs at 5m/s so that Emilio gains 8 - 5 = 3m/s over Miguel. Then Emilio will gain 60m over Miguel in 60/3 = 20 seconds. Further, Emilio will take 200/8 = 25 seconds to complete 200m. In 25 seconds, Miguel will be able to cover $25\cdot 5=125m$. Therefore, Emilio wins the race in 25 seconds.
