Olympic medals database

July 1, 2012

Spotted this open data set that lists all of the medal winners from the Summer Olympics, published by Simon Rogers at the Guardian.

It includes both individual and team medal winners, with summary tables by country.  It’s a pretty cool data set, and one of the few I’ve seen that cover Olympic athletes.

If you’re not familiar with the Guardian’s data blog, or Simon Rogers’ book “Facts are Sacred: The Power of Data,” then you should definitely check them out.  Simon is doing some of the most interesting work in the field of open data.
