Discussion at Simone Manuel[edit]

Hello! There is currently a dispute at Simone Manuel, an article under this WikiProject's scope, regarding the statement that Manuel is the first black woman to win a swimming gold in an individual event and whether or not Ranomi Kromowidjojo's racial background renders this statement incorrect for Manuel. Other editors are invited to join the discussion at Talk:Simone Manuel#Simone Manuel, the first black woman to win a gold medal? ~Cheers, TenTonParasol 22:47, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

Duplicate information about participating countries[edit]

At 1908 Summer Olympics, I noticed that the list of participating countries and the number of athletes was duplicated, first presented as a compact list on two columns, then as a sortable table, initially collapsed. I kept just the table and made it visible.[1] However I saw that the same arrangement was made at other Olympics articles, and therefore I came to this project talk page to ask why we maintain two lists at each Olympiad. If there's a compelling reason, feel free to undo my change for 1908. If there is none, then perhaps we should decide to keep just one of the two lists, pick a display style and apply it to all events. — JFG talk 20:03, 31 July 2017 (UTC)
