Re: Really cool
Thanks Nicole. We had fun putting this together. Before we take on more homework, we'd like to see how the FC community reacts and what other uses can be made of the data which is all available on our website (be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page to download the data sheets.) 

It would be really cool to track this over time. We'll see what we can do about that. There is so much that can be done with this. It is interesting that cities that have hosted past olympics seem to do particularly well for example.

Really cool
Hi Mathieu - Thank you for sharing this excellent and fascinating information with the Future Cities community! I'd love to see what other findings people derive from looking at the data. Moreover, I'm curious to know how cities did this year compared to previous years. Any plans to look at the data from previous Olympic games as well?
