Olympics / Paralympics

Someone sent me this link – it’s from the New York Times. A full, nicely-animated medals table of the Olympics from ALL the Olympics in the modern era including Beijing. It looks really impressive – take a look. If you use the internet in your classroom then show your students, I think they’ll love it. Click here.

“Ahh, but Dave”, you might be saying – “The Olympics are over”. Oh are they? One week from now begins the 2008 Paralympics with (I think) Cultura Natal’s own Adriano Lima competing in the swimming for Brazil. So there might be some mileage in this yet.
