Challenge #278: Women Athletes and The Olympics

I'm not sure you can get to the given solution with the data provided because athletes may be duplicated either by country or sport. Then, when joining the two datasets, records get duplicated and it isn't obvious which is the correct record to keep... but maybe I'm missing something. So far it looks like others have left duplicates in their answers as well.

This one really should be tagged regex.... I concatenated the entries where a participant won multiple medals... I note the official solution doesn't do that and creates a value based upon the medal received of 1,2,3 which wasn't in the instructions.

The joys of working with ambiguous data...

Spoiler
I spent the bulk of my time analyzing the solutions trying to figure out how these two data sets joined considering that the ID's were not unique in either table. I finally settled on created a secondary ID, numbering each instance of an ID in Participants based on the order in it appeared in the set and numbering the instances in Details based on the year of the game followed by the order in which the instance appeared. Seemed to give me a reasonable match to the supplied data set. By the way, the solution shows the number of times women appeared in competition, not the number of women who competed. I modified the chart to show both.
