This visualization adapts the Visual History of Olympics to only show medals
of long distance runs, including the marathon, 10km and 5km runs for both men and women. The
visualization is based on the nice article A Visual History of Which Countries Have Dominated the
in the New York Times. The difference is that now you can verify how we processed the, but you can
also add other disciplines to the list!
To find out which countries dominate the Olympic games in specific sports, you'll first need to go to our Medals per Team Table. When you click "options", you can easily add or remove disciplines or sports. Then you can modify the visualization here to include different sports and different countries.
