Olympic Team Google Map, 2008 Edition

Just before the Olympic Games started in Beijing, I put together an interactive Google map of the 2008 Canadian Olympic team. It was too late to get it incorporated into the COC's own excellent 2008 Beijing web site, but here it is for your entertainment. The map is interactive in the usual Google Maps way, and clicking on the icons will bring up a capsule on the athlete in question. Within the capsule, the link will take you to the full athlete profile on the COC site.

This was a repeat of my 2006 effort, although it required significant modification to make it work with the new Google Maps API, and I also went to the effort of making it look like the COC pages.
