The Olympic Sports That Have Come and Gone

Source: FiveThirtyEight
Author: Allison McCann


Best Practices:

  • Very well organised
  • Easy to understand
  • Good use of color; they’re synonymous with the Olympics
  • Nice labelling
  • Good use of annotations


Recommended Enhancements
:

  • The design highlights the sports that have gone away. It might make more sense to switch these around so that these sports fade away with a light grey.
  • It’s too hard to see the reinstated sports. Maybe include another color for these.
