Olympic maps

NYT has a few interesting tools for Olympic maps

1) Bubble map for total number of medals (historic and current, bubble size for total number of medals)

2) Map of Gold Medal winner for event

plus charting tool of World records by year -- how human being has "evolved".


Update: Medal 'modeling', and my comments here

"CIS" has more medals than US as well. even if one excludes Georgia.

btw, There are double count medals for "EU", since according to the IOC rule, the number of participants would be limited (so at most 2 medals in some sports and 1 medal for many ball games). But i guess EU still tops the list, especially as it is now expanding eastward.
