The five coloured interlocking rings of the Olympic Games has become an instantly recognisable icon of the annual event. Originally designed in 1912 by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, who was also the founder of the modern Olympic Games, each ring stands for the one of the five participating continents: Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania. Brazilian artist Gustavo Sousa created this awesome animation using the iconography of the Olympic rings to illustrate rough stats about the continents.
