March 2021 Challenge Round-Up
Updated: Apr 6, 2021
I want to start the recap with a big thank you to Autumn & Eve from #DiversityinData and Lindsay & Sean from #ProjectHealthViz for collaborating on the challenge. Adaptive sports is near and dear to me and I am so thankful that we had the opportunity to promote this within our communities.
Thank you to the community for contributing so many visualizations this month. I enjoyed seeing what you created and how you highlighted both the wheelchair marathon, Paralympic, and Deaflympic athletes.
We've covered these in our weekly round-ups so instead of going through each viz I wanted to highlight a things that jumped out to me.
Laura Kennedy jumping into #SportsVizSunday as a newer Tableau user
Megan R. K. Seritan using matplotlib & Illustrator for her fantastic viz on the Women's Wheelchair winners.
Dennis Kao's timeline route maps.
Fred Najjar's radial view of the Summer Paralympic games.
Steph Blair's preview of the Tokyo games. The sport selector and the story of the sport (overview, history, and what to expect) were well done!
Branden Kornell's Legends of the Wheelchair marathon was a different and effective way to present the dominance of top athletes and where they won.
Ghafar Shah for iterating multiple times on his visualization and creating a great final product.
You all are amazing and thank you so much for all the support this month!!
MULTIPLE CHALLENGE VISUALIZATIONS:
We had 4 people who created multiple visualizations this month, Stephanie & Saverio both created 3 different visualizations and Ant & Jun both created two different visualizations. Amazing work!
BRING YOUR OWN DATA:
Thank you Andrew for bringing your own data and teaching us about the Deaflympics. I loved the wide-scroll visualization.

There were so many fantastic entries for this topic! Thank you Dennis, Simon, Aashique, Megan, Michelle, Branden, Ghafar, and will for each taking a different approach to highlight these athletes.
