The AchievementTable template is a simple way to start a table to list track and field or athletics achievements on an athlete's article. For an in-use example, see James Kwalia.

Parameters

The template has four parameters, all of them optional.

{{AchievementTable|width=|nation=|Event=|NotesOff=}}
  • width This amends the overall width of the achievement table in percent of the page width. This defaults to 71, which is the optimal width for usage alongside the {{MedalTableTop}} series of templates
  • nation This allows for a caption showing the nation that the athlete represented at the competition. This should only be used when an athlete has represented multiple nations. Note that where different nations are represented as separate table with a new caption should be used as this helps accessibility for screen readers. This option defaults to no caption.
  • Event This adds an additional "Event" column before the final "Notes" column, which should be used to denote the athletic discipline that the result relates to (e.g. 100 metres). The default is that this column is not shown.
  • NotesOff This removes the final notes column from the table – useful when no notes are available or required. The default is that the Notes column is shown.

Usage

In order to use the template, simply open a table and add the template as follows:

{| {{AchievementTable}}

Using this template can help you write tables like the one below

Year Competition Venue Position Event Notes
2001 World Youth Championships Debrecen, Hungary 3rd 3000 m
2003 World Athletics Final Monte Carlo, Monaco 5th 3000 m
2004 World Athletics Final Monte Carlo, Monaco 2nd 3000 m
2005 World Cross Country Championships St Etienne, France 15th Short race
World Championships Helsinki, Finland 13th 5000 m
World Athletics Final Monte Carlo, Monaco 6th 5000 m
Asian Athletics Championships Incheon, South Korea 1st 5000 m

Basic examples

You can start to add the details immediately after using the AchievementTable template. For example, the following code:

{| {{AchievementTable|nation=ESP}}
|-
| 2004
| 2004 Summer Olympics
| Athens, Greece
| 4th
| 10.04 seconds
|-
| 2008
| 2008 Summer Olympics
| Beijing, China
| 5th
| 10.08 seconds
|}

Would give you the following table:

Representing  Spain
Year Competition Venue Position Notes
2004 2004 Summer Olympics Athens, Greece 4th 10.04 seconds
2008 2008 Summer Olympics Beijing, China 5th 10.08 seconds

Event feature

Many athletes compete in more than one event, sometimes within the same competition – Usain Bolt in the 100 and 200 metres at the 2008 Olympics for instance. If you need to note the specific event which the athlete was competing in, then you can activate the "Event" column.

{| {{AchievementTable|Event=yes|nation=ESP}}
|-
| 2004
| 2004 Summer Olympics
| Athens, Greece
| 4th
| 100 metres
| 10.04 seconds
|-
| 2004
| 2004 Summer Olympics
| Athens, Greece
| 8th
| 200 metres
| 20.45 seconds
|-
| 2008
| 2008 Summer Olympics
| Beijing, China
| 5th
| 100 metres
| 10.08 seconds
|-
| 2008
| 2008 Summer Olympics
| Beijing, China
| 7th
| 200 metres
| 20.31 seconds
|}

Would give you the following table:

Representing  Spain
Year Competition Venue Position Event Notes
2004 2004 Summer Olympics Athens, Greece 4th 100 metres 10.04 seconds
2004 2004 Summer Olympics Athens, Greece 8th 200 metres 20.45 seconds
2008 2008 Summer Olympics Beijing, China 5th 100 metres 10.08 seconds
2008 2008 Summer Olympics Beijing, China 7th 200 metres 20.31 seconds

NotesOff feature

To turn off the notes column in the table simply add "NotesOff=yes" into the template.

{| {{AchievementTable|Event=yes|NotesOff=yes|nation=ESP}}
|-
| 2004
| 2004 Summer Olympics
| Athens, Greece
| 4th
| 100 metres
|-
| 2004
| 2004 Summer Olympics
| Athens, Greece
| 8th
| 200 metres
|}

Would give you the following table:

Representing  Spain
Year Competition Venue Position Event
2004 2004 Summer Olympics Athens, Greece 4th 100 metres
2004 2004 Summer Olympics Athens, Greece 8th 200 metres

Note that the Vertical bar ( | ) character can be written by holding shift and pressing the " \ " key.
