These emitted electrons get trapped within the perimeter of the atom, and are confined around the nucleus in what is being termed an intra-atomic "dance.
Once the intra-atomic forces were balanced by the first few electrons emitted, the rest left the atom as soon as they were emitted and hence "won" the race despite not being the first electrons to get ejected.
