The first is a 360 degree rotating high-res picture of what it’s like to look off the top of the diving platform in the Water Cube. It would be difficult enough to jump off this thing but imagine doing it with 17,000 people staring at you. Here.
The second is a map of Olympic medals. The countries that won more medals in a particular year are represented by a larger circle. Here.
