Gabriel Cole (athlete)[edit]

  • Symbol confirmed.svg QPQ Done
  • Pictogram voting keep.svg Hook formatted correctly, not sure if {{convert|100|m}} should be used
  • Symbol confirmed.svg Article is new enough, long enough and supports hook fact. TAP 21:31, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I wouldn't advise using "convert" in this case; meters aren't that much longer than yards, the only reasonable conversion alternative. I would, however, recommend a slight change to "as a result of", which isn't ideal; ALT2 is more involved as it brings in the talent scout:

I wouldn't use convert either because it is a distance. There is a spelling difference that might drive USAians nutty. :) Talent scout isn't quite right but I'm also happy with ALT1. In either case, green tick and some one move to Paralympic holding area? :D --LauraHale (talk) 12:15, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

If "talent scout" isn't quite right then the article itself needs to be changed; those two words are the words used in the Wikipedia article and the Griffiths source; I would have changed "talent" to "track" or "track and field" but I wasn't sure of the Australian terminology for the sport so I figured it was best to go with the word choice already made.

  • Symbol confirmed.svg, as requested. :P ALT1 good to go. TAP 12:17, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I have struck both the original hook and ALT2 due to the issues raised. BlueMoonset (talk) 13:19, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
