Weekly Round-Up 06.06.2021
It's that time of the week again - #SportsVizSunday round-up time! There's been some great sports visualisations created in the last week, so let's dig in.
There were a couple of last minute entries to the May challenge looking at the Kentucky Derby. The information in Scott's visualisation is well presented, and Megan Seritan has done some excellent work using Matplotlib in Python.
It's the first week of a new month and there have been some excellent entries to kick off our June challenge topic - the European Football Championship.
Mateusz Karmalski produced a very comprehensive history of the competition in this viz, with records dating back to 1960 when the tournament first launched as the European Nation's Cup.
It's not very often that we are able to share content not in English. This look ahead to this year's Euro's is fascinating, and the context makes the Polish almost understandable.
The regular football season concluded last week with the Champions League final. In this visualisation, Devin Bhatia looks at how the leading goalscorers in Europe's top 5 leagues performed throughout the 2020/21 season.
Dave Roberts sumarises the 47,000 shots taken in the Premier League since 2016 in this viz.
The next two vizzes look at Arsenal's somewhat underwhelming 2020/21 season (please don't hurt me, Spencer). Rajesh packed a lot of interesting insights into his, while Adam opted for something very sleek and minimalistic.
Daichi Kamada has had a flying Bundesliga season, as demonstrated by Adam Davidson.
The Brooklyn Nets had an impressive NBA season, shown here by Shangruff Raina.
I had never heard the story of the 1904 Olympic Marathon, but Will Sutton does a great job at telling the shocking tales of it in this historical viz.
The Amstel Gold Race was held for the 55th time this year. Take a look at the history of the Netherland's greatest one day cycle race in this viz by Pei-Shan Chiang.
The French Open is well underway and Nadal's dominance in the competition is paid tribute to in this viz by Scott Buckley.
That's all the content we have for you this week. We can't wait to see what you create next! Don't forget that if you love sports, a topic for the Iron Viz feeder round might be closer than you think!
