Olympic Medals Through History

Brought to my attention by Information Aesthetics is a cool New York Times Graph Feature of past Olympic medal winnings by nation.  it is realy cool to look at in a historical context.  Like how Germany Dominated in 1936, right before WWII and the absence of the US in the games of 1980 (where, not too surprising, the USSR and East Germany took the most medals).  Very neat.
