London 2012 Olympics — Lead, tin and zinc

Folks at WSJ were funny. They gave another medal list of London 2012 Olympic Games, not for the first place but for the last place. They replaced Gold, Silver and Bronze with  Lead, Tin and Zinc. No matter who came up to this idea, it’s interesting. As it’s still a part of this Olympic Games, I’d like to present their uncommon medal list.

This is a snapshot and the original is here. Btw: GeoChart is much faster than GeoMap, with more low level arguments.

 Note: the original data came from WSJ research and it’s the half-way result. I couldn’t find the final result.
