The 2012 Olympics in London is still a couple years away, so to hold you off until then, you can review this interesting infographic that looks at the languages of the Olympics. It is designed by James Wilson from, and uses the Olympic rings as a way to illustrate the languages of the Olympics.

The Olympics rings (the interlocking blue, yellow, black, green and red rings on a white background), originally designed by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic Games, represent the five continents of Africa, Europe, Asia, Oceania and the Americas.

Throughout these five continents many languages and dialects are spoken. The rings shown here on this infographic represent some of the major languages and dialects spoken throughout these continents. No precedence has been given to any specific languages and the size of a language does not denote the popularity or the assumed use of that language. The Olympic committee have stipulated that no one ring represents a specific continent; however on this graphic each ring does represent a specific continent.
