medal map

Great piece of info porn from the New York Times, an interactive medal map that shows the distribution of Olympic medal winnings by country over time. What I love is that you scrub the slider from 1894 to the present is just how much more diverse the winnings are -- more countries competing, more countries winning.


And if you scrub the slider fast enough you can quickly skip over the whole 1980 thing.
