Well, the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games ended today, so what better time to begin a “The Best…” list for the next Olympics coming up?
I’ll obviously be adding to this list over the next two years. In addition to specific resources related to the Sochi Games, I’m starting off by including sites from previous Olympic lists that would be relevant.
In addition, you might be interested in some of these other lists. Dead links are included in them, but most seem to still be live:
