heavy medal mayhem

This (via Strange Maps) is very cool indeed: an interactive series of maps of the competing countries in each Games in the modern Olympic era, with the size of the country dictated by its total medal tally.

While we're on the subject of the Olympics (again), let's do a Welshman Of The Day: sprinter Christian Malcolm, who has just qualified for the men's 200m final, though unless one of Usain Bolt's freakishly long legs comes off at some point during the race the result seems like a foregone conclusion. He's from Newport, you know (Malcolm, not Bolt). There's lovely. Isn't it.
