Meet your local Olympic Champion!

Olympic Roots
Well, the 2008 Beijing Olympics are over. However, there’s still so much scope for distraction with this new Google Mashup from Supernifty.

The page shows where in the world all the medal winners come from. See which athletes are from your home town.

This will help you know who to look out for down at your local shopping centre.

It’s also an opportunity to learn more about your favorite athlete, where they got started, and how they got to be at the top of their game.

And of course it’s an opportunity to stick it to your neighbouring state/city/county by checking to see who won the most medals.

    Nice idea, but be careful with data from I was checking Argentine medallists and found many errors.
