Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

The Medal infobox series of templates allow editors to list an athlete or sportsperson's major medals at the top of their respective biography article, alongside the lead section.

Usage

The medal infobox consists of two templates:

  • {{MedalTableTop}} – for starting the table (image optional)
  • {{Medal}} – for the several elements within the table

A further template ({{MedalBox}}) is used for listing medals in the middle of the main article text.

Parameters

MedalTableTop

Michael Johnson

Johnson at the London Olympic Stadium
Medal record
Men's athletics
Representing the  United States
{{MedalTableTop
| name = Michael Johnson
| image = Michael Johnson at London Olympic Stadium 2010-07 1.JPG
| image_size = 180px
| alt = Alternative text here
| caption = Johnson at the London Olympic Stadium
| sport = Men's [[sport of athletics|athletics]]
| country_code = USA
| medals = {{Medal|Sport}}
}}
Basic usage
{{MedalTableTop |name= |image= |image_size= |alt= |caption= |sport= |country_code= |medals= }}
  • name – This option adjusts the title that appears at the top of the box. This should typically be the athlete's common name. By default it will display the article title without the disambiguator, for example on Michael Johnson (sprinter) "Michael Johnson" will appear by default. To deactivate the title enter no in the field.
  • image – This give you the option to place a headline image in the infobox. Use just the file name and extension, excluding the namespace prefix, for example: MyImage.jpg not File:MyImage.jpg.
  • image_size (or imagesize) – This adjusts the size of the image and must consist of a number followed by "px" (e.g. 150px). The default is 100px. Sizes over 200px are no recommended for typical usage.
  • alt – This provides a description of the image for accessibility users or those using weak connections
  • caption – This adds a short description to describe the image. Try to be brief, using just a few words.
  • header – This optional field can be used to change the text in the opening "Medal record" section. This is useful when the template appears in a section of an article. See Michael Phelps for a working example.
  • sport – This option includes the athlete's sport (e.g. Men's swimming) in the first line of the medal record. This replaces the need for {{Medal|Sport}} when an athlete has medalled in only one sport. In cases where an athlete has competed in multiple sports, it is still possible to use the {{Medal|Sport}} template usage to list the different sports.
  • country_code – This option uses the country code (e.g. USA = United States, CHN = China, GBR2 = Great Britain) to generate the country that the athlete represents in the second line of the medal record. This replaces the need for {{Medal|Country}} when an athlete has competed for only one country. In cases where an athlete has represented multiple countries, it is still possible to use the {{Medal|Country}} template usage to list the different countries.
  • medals – This is the only compulsory field as this is used to place medals and descriptions within the infobox through the {{Medal}} template. To work correctly it must be the last field in the main template.

The MedalBox template has a similar output to the MedalTableTop template, but it is specifically designed for non-infobox usages (i.e. mid-article boxes).

Basic usage
{{MedalBox |color= |title= |sport= |country= |medals= }}
  • color – This option changes the color of the box header. If omitted, the default is light grey.
  • title – This parameter allows you to customise the box title. If omitted, the default is "Medal record".
  • sport – This displays the athlete's primary sport (e.g. "Men's beach volleyball"). This option supersedes the "Medal|Sport" template function.
  • country – This displays the athlete's primary country or team (e.g. "{{BRA}}"), including "the" where appropriate (e.g. the {{USA}}, the {{URS}}, the {{MHL}}, the {{UAE}}, the {{GBR}}, the {{BAH}}, the {{NED}}, the {{PHI}}, the {{SEY}}, the {{GAM}}, the {{SOL}}). This option supersedes the "Medal|Country" template function.
  • medals – This is the only compulsory field as this is used to place medals and descriptions within the box through the {{Medal}} template. To work correctly it must be the last field in the main template.

The Medal template is a multi-purpose one which allows for all varieties of entries within the medal table.

Basic usage 
{{Medal|TYPE|FIELD1|FIELD2}}

There are four major types:

  • Competition – This states the general competition at which the following medals were achieved (e.g. Olympic Games, Pan Pacific Swimming Championships)
  • Medal performances – There are ten types of medal performances. These contain two separate fields for the year of the competition and its location (e.g. 2008 Beijing, 2010 Delhi) and the medalling event or category (e.g. pole vault, 56 kg, 50 m freestyle). The medal types are (with shortcut in brackets):
    • Gold (G)
    • Silver (S)
    • Bronze (B)
    • Winner (W)
    • Runnerup (RU)
    • First (1st)
    • Second (2nd)
    • Third (3rd)
    • Disqualified (DQ)
    • TrueSpirit

Disqualified

Disqualified 2012 TEST 100 m[1]
{{MedalTableTop|name=no|medals=
{{Medal|Disqualified|2012 TEST|100 m}}<ref>Reason for disqualification</ref>
}}

For the disqualified medal template, it is possible to create a reference directly after the template to explain the reason for disqualification. This can be particularly useful in the case of relay runners disqualified through no fault of their own, due to doping by team mates for example.

The final medal performances type is used for the Pierre de Coubertin medal. This has only one extra field for the year it was awarded.

Where an athlete has competed for multiple countries or in multiple sports it will be necessary to use the Country or Sport Medal types, in addition to the main sport and country_code listings in the MedalTableTop template

  • Relevant country (or team) – This is usually the first section showing the person's relevant country (or team).
    • Country – Enter the country's three letter code in curly brackets (e.g. {{CHN}} ), including "the" where appropriate (e.g. the {{USA}}, the {{URS}}, the {{MHL}}, the {{UAE}}, the {{GBR}}, the {{BAH}}, the {{NED}}, the {{PHI}}, the {{SEY}}, the {{GAM}}, the {{SOL}}). In rare cases the correct input may be something else (e.g. a team name).
    • Independent - This is used for independent athletes.
  • Sport – This states the sport that the athlete is competing in (e.g. Women's swimming)

Examples
