The Olympics are here!

Happy Friday!

In honor of the start of the summer Olympics check out a sweet map put out by The Economist.  As you pan through the timeline you will see every Olympics from the first modern summer games held in Athens, Greece in 1896 to the 30th modern summer games which are starting today in London, England.  The map shows the number of nations that participated in each summer games in blue and the host country in red as well as a few facts about that particular Olympics.
