In celebration of the upcoming Olympic Games, QlikTech has developed a Global Games app that lets users view information from past competitions over the last century and extract facts and statistics on the different events.
Using a plethora of historical data on past events, QlikTech’s Global Games App provides a great springboard for examining each country’s past successes, uncovering new facts and aiding predictions for medal winners this year.
For example, we’ve found that:
¬∑ The tallest competitor of all time is Tommy Burleson, a Basketball player from the USA who measured in at 7ft 3in
¬∑ The heaviest competitors on average aren’t those competing in the fields of Judo or Wrestling but Basketball and Baseball, weighing in at 194.7lb and 191.9lb respectively
¬∑ South African athletes have won a total of 70 medals of which 80% was won by males while 20 % won by females
