Visualisation through sound – the New York Times 'audiolises' the Winter Olympics

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2010/02/26/sports/olympics/20100226-olysymphony.html

The New York Times has combined visualisation with audio to produce a fascinating piece of work on the differences between gold winning times and runners-up across a number of Winter Olympics events. It’s a particularly creative approach to the challenge of communicating a relatively abstract story: what separates gold and silver. Well worth a look.
