In the spirit of a little friendly competition, we felt the Olympics would be the perfect theme for this month’s contest. Below, you will find a dataset, created by Arjun Prasad Sarkhel, that contains data on athletes, teams, medal counts, and more.

  • You must use Numerro components and apply either a Numerro theme or a custom theme.
  • Email a PBIX file no later than September 8th, 2021 at 12PM MST. Please name your file Lastname_Firstname.pbix and send to

How to Win:

  • Unleash your creativity, have fun, and deliver something unique.
