Google’s London 2012 Olympic Games website includes an Olympics Medal Map. The map is empty this morning but should start filling up soon. The map shows the distribution of medals won by location. It is possible to refine the medals shown by gold, silver and bronze.

The map also shows the location  of every country in the Olympic Games. If the athletes’ parade from the opening ceremony left you scratching your head once or twice then you can use this map to find out where a country is in the world (I admit I had to look up Sao Tome and Principe).

If you select a country from the drop-down menu the map zooms in on the chosen country and also shows you the country’s flag, how many athletes are representing the country, how many sports they have qualified for and also gives a breakdown of any medals the country has won.
