Creating a chart based on time values, not epoch time

Path Finder

Is it possible to create a chart using time values "4:53:43" vs. converting them to epoch time "1505930393"?

I'd like the Y-Axis to be time (3:41:32) - (6:43:21) and the X-Axis to be a name.

Basically these are race results and I'd like the chart to show the times of each participant. Do I have to convert the time value to a real number?

Currently the vertical axes don't work that way on any of the viz that I'm aware of.

Two possible workarounds:

First, as you said, but divide the epoch duration by 3600 to get hours duration.

Second, flip the axes, where names are along the left, and race duration is the length of the horizontal bar. Change the mouseover to display the HH:MM:SS value.
