Top Medalists of London 2012

This visualization is a simple modification of "Individual Medalists of All Time", but rather than looking at medals over the entire history of Olympic games, it looks at medals of specific Olympic games.

In this visualization, we look at London 2012, but you can easily change the selected Olympic games in "options" and find top medalists of other games!

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.
