Novel Way To Recognize Olympic Stars, Riders of the London Underground will be able to catch a train to “Kobe Bryant” to transfer trains to “Carl Lewis” thanks a new map that changes the city’s 361 Tube stations to names of famous Olympic athletes.

The map, designed by Alex Trickett and David Brooks, is being sold on Transport for London’s website prior to the 2012 Summer Games.

Each line was named for athletes in respective sports or disciplines. Swimmers make up the central line, tennis stars and basketball players dominate the interior black line and boxers and wrestlers make up most of the southeast corner of London.

Two Americans received prime placement on the map. The names of Michael Phelps and Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali) were bestowed upon the two Stratford stations that will welcome passengers to London’s Olympic Stadium.
