Join the SAS Data Olympics Challenge

With the Rio Olympics just around the corner, wouldn’t it be fun to create visualizations using public Olympic data? Using SAS VA, you can help create buzz around the world’s biggest sporting event and maybe even get published.

 

The Challenge

Write an article focused on Olympic insights or trends from the past or present. Do you have any thoughts on who might win this year's coveted medals based on current stats for the athletes? Don’t forget to highlight SAS VA features and include screenshots. Send the article to Amy Chesebrough by Friday, July 22, 2016.

 

The Perks

You’ll receive a SAS VA T-shirt and will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a Fit Bit. Your by-line article may be featured in SAS social media, digital channels, and in the PR community.

 

Get started now by going to www.sports-reference.com/olympics/ for free public data.
