If you'd like to set this up to include in your emails, here's a quick how to:

  1. Source a data feed
  2. Create a Content Automation template in your account - connect it to the datafeed
  3. Upload a background image for the design
  4. Build out the content blocks, connecting them to the correct content in the feed
  5. Style it up, just how you want it to look.

    Top tip: Use the Row function on the right to move to a different position within the feed e.g. 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the medal table.

  6. Create a Content Automation Tag!
  7. Add it to your email and there you have it - a live medal table!

    Top Tip: Apply the widget in the rule builder to show a different image before the games begin and a different image after the games have ended.
