If you've played Fantasy Olympian before or if you have followed us on social media, you know that 2014 has been a record-breaking year for Fantasy Olympian. After having approximately 150 participants for the 2012 Olympics in London, we 1,540 teams this year! That included 33 school groups that participated in Fantasy Olympian in their classrooms.
Our little site -- which started as a blog for four people during the 2006 Olympics -- generated more than 131,000 page views from more than 5,000 unique visitors. Not surprisingly, our biggest sources of visitors were Chicago, New York, and Boston, but we also had traffic from all of the United States, Australia, Great Britain, Korea, Scandinavia, and yes, even Sochi. Moral of the story? Fantasy Olympian 2014 was truly a global affair!
We're also happy to report that more than 300 of you downloaded one of our first two podcasts -- so we hope you enjoy the third installment, available below.
We're crunching some numbers and hope to have a bit more information about this year's fantasy game -- including our mythical "Overall Winner" -- soon. But we just wanted to take this opportunity to let everyone who has been a part of Fantasy Olympian over the years know how remarkable this year has been for us and say thanks! And a particularly big thank you goes out to our software engineers Steve Hammond and Nat Budin, who built the new site! We're looking forward to even bigger and better things for 2016 and we can't wait to share it with all of you.
