Why isn't Powerlifting linked here? It uses the template. Also, it's a bit odd (but not totally unreasonable) to have both Olympic weightlifting and Weightlifting (piped to Olympic weightlifting) in the templates.-- (talk) 10:33, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Deleting redundant entries[edit]

Many of the links overlapped with each other; for example Oly lifting was listed (which is a sport), as well as the individual disciplines (e.g., clean and jerk), which are not, in and of themselves, sports. "Strength athletics" appears to be a less common name strongman (per its article). WSM is a specific promotion, not a sport. I fail to see how natural bodybuilding is contested any differently than regular bodybuilding--if the competitions are conducted in the same manner, it is one and the same sport (but perhaps with multiple governing bodies; but in that case powerlifting would need approximately 50 entries on this template).

The inclusion of mas-wrestling is intriguing because it is a sport (similar to tug-of-war) which requires almost nothing other than brute strength, but at the same time is done in a face-to-face manner unlike the other sports listed in the template, in which competitors' performances are judged one at a time, or in heats. That said, the World Games site lists tug-of-war (which is much more notable than mas-wrestling) under the strength sports heading, along with powerlifting and bodybuilding.[1] — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:12, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
