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.

Olympic medals of former Czechoslovakia

The visualization shows all Olympic medals of Bohemia, Czechoslovakia, Czech Republic and Slovakia. By default, every single medal is counted and you can see that this creates two large spikes (when Czechoslovakia won football tournament where a large number of individual medals is awarded). You can modify the visualization to show just individual event by replacing "count" in the series value with count of distinct events.
