With the Olympics in full swing, we thought it might be cool to do a little bit of research on female Olympians from the United States.
Ever wondered which State has the most female Olympians?
Or which college has the most female gold medallists?
Well now you don’t need to wonder, because we’ve done the research for you.
We analyzed a ton of data on female Olympians representing Team USA from 1984 all the way up to the 2020 team and found some really interesting pieces of information in the data.
For instance female olympians with the names Kim or Jennifer from California or Texas are more likely to become gold medal winners than people with other names or from other states.
Let’s jump in and take a closer look at the data!
