Czech and Slovak Medals History

Did Czech Republic and Slovakia get more medals after becoming separate countries in 1993? Looks like the answer is not obvious. This visualization shows the counts of Olympic medals that Bohemia, Czechoslovakia, Slovakia and Czech Republic got in a timeline inspired by this New York Times visualization.

One interesting fact - the visualization counts only one medal per event, so when Czechoslovakia won medals in Footbal in 1980, this visualization counts it just as one medal. You can easily change this - to count every single medal awarded click on "options" and change the option and value Event in "Get the data" to and value count. You'll see how the chart changes!

Number of teams per Games

The visualization shows how the number of countries who participate in Olympics has been changing over the history of the Olympic games. The number is steadily growing, with the exception of 1980s when Western block and Eastern blocked countries boycotted games in USA and Soviet Union.
