Finds: visualizing olympic medals over time

Hey folks,

Here's another one from the times. It shows Olympic medals by nation, over the history of the games. Position and name indicate nation, color indicates continent, and size the number of medals. Grab the slider and watch the distribution of medals change throughout Olympic history. Two things jump out to me: the recent rise of Asia, and the incredible achievement (swindle?) of East Germany in its day.

Best,

Ben.
