olympic evolution

getting excited about the summer olympics in london, set to kick off july 27th, 2012?  i certainly am, despite the fact that the logo and mascots are horribly designed and downright creepy

a nice visualization of all countries participating in the olympic games since 1896 comes from alicia korn:

the inner ring shows the flags of the 14 countries who competed in the first of the modern olympic games.  the outer ring shows all of the almost 200 countries that will participate this year!
