Map: U.S. Olympic medalists' hometowns
By Patrick Dorsey
Midway through the Olympics we debuted this map, one that shows the hometowns (as listed on the 2012 London Olympics' official website) of all of the American medalists at the Games.
Now it's complete. More than 200 U.S. athletes took home hardware, and more than half of those grabbed gold. All come from places -- some big, some tiny -- that celebrated along with them. Thirty-eight of the 50 states were represented, with California (54) by far the most medaled of the group. Even British Columbia offered an American medalist (women's soccer player Sydney Leroux has dual citizenship).
