Two sports journalists designed the unique interpretation, which features 361 Olympic legends.

Transport for London has unveiled a new tube map that features the names of Olympic athletes instead of stations. The ‘Underground Olympic Legends Map‘ was designed by sports journalists Alex Trickett and David Brooks, who said of their creation:

We love sport, we love lists and we love London, so what better challenge than to select 361 of the greatest athletes the world has ever seen and to fit them on to our iconic tube map. There were heated debates and a few late changes of heart, but we are happy with the result: dozens of nations represented, all 2012 Olympic sports accounted for, and Ali and Phelps, two of the greatest Olympians of all time, guarding the Stratford gateways to the Games.
