Sochi 2014: Do More Athletes Always = More Medals??

Sochi 2014: Do More Athletes Always = More Medals??

Mo' Athletes, Mo' Medals?

This project shows the Olympic medals won by each country in the 2014 Winter Games and how they measure up to the total number of athletes that competed. The goal was to show a different story than just who came out on top by presenting it in a fun (but very accurate) way.

You don't need the most athletes to win medals, you just need the best ones.

Also! The centered and symmetrical positioning of the medals, while facilitating objective comparisons, also provide a fun subjective perspective to the audience, especially those less interested in performance or young kids.
