Map of Champions

EarthGamZ is a Google Earth browser map for the Beijing Olympic Games. As well as using the map to view the Beijing Olympic stadiums in 3D you can also check out the biographies of all the athletes taking part in the games.

It is possible to search the map by sport and country. It is possible therefore to quickly view the biographies of all the US swimmers. Each athlete is geo-tagged by their town of residence. Did you know, for example, that all the US beach volleyball players live on the Californian coast? Not that surprising I suppose.

That's superb...Cheers for the heads up. I'll even forgive you the shameless bit of Obama/McCain keyword stuffing in your Breaking News post ;) :) :P
