Olympic viewers in the United States, along with much of the rest of the world, focus their attention on the Sochi Olympics this year. Some wins have been in line with predictions; the Dutch collected speed skating medals like they were going out of style, a favorite sport for them. Other outcomes were more surprising, the Russians were just knocked out of the ice hockey quarter-finals in their home country, for example. What trends can we find relating to sports, how long they’ve been Olympic games, and favored countries for each sport? We used data looking at medal counts by country, year and discipline to see what we could find.
