The Olympics in Numbers

In this post, we were inspired by the #MakeoverMonday challenge to compile the most interesting data we’ve found about the Olympics into a redesigned infographic. There was a vast amount of data to choose from, but rather than focusing on country wins or medals, we chose the following topics: the gender gap among participating athletes, the increase in number of olympic events, the size of TV viewership for the opening ceremonies, and the costs incurred by the host country.
