New London Underground Map Renames Stations After Olympic Athletes

Just in time for the Olympic Games to begin, a revamped map of the London Underground has been released where all of the 361 stations have been renamed after Olympic Athletes.

Each station’s name has been replaced with a famous athlete’s name, such as King’s Cross station which has been named in honor of Nadia Comaneci who was the first female gymnast to achieve a perfect 10 score in the Olympics. The map also celebrates Olympians who won gold medals as well as others who had famous defeats. Some of the other famous names on the new Underground map include Usain Bolt, Evelyn Ashford and Sugar Ray Leonard.

The special edition map was designed by Alex Trickett and David Brooks.┬áThe duo chose an American athlete to represent the main Olympic venue’s stop: swimmer Michael Phelps, whose 14 gold medals make him the most successful Olympian of all time.
