Wikipedia has standards, this wiki doesn't.

To merit a page for an athlete or coach in Wikipedia, sportspeople must have played in a fully professional league, or a competition of equivalent standing in a non-league sport such as swimming, or at the highest level in mainly amateur sports, usually considered to mean the Olympic Games or World Championships. Here at, not so much.

A for Athlete, founders of Olympicpedia

Olympicpedia was a eight week technology, sports and language day camp that ended July 31, 2008 held at Pittsburgh's CyberConXion (now closed). The camp concluded with more than 1,000+ pages created and its main participants headed to Beijing for the 2008 Olympics. Sadly, the wiki, A for Athlete, was (and is) not visible in China (also known as CHN) Flag of the People's Republic of China. So, for the duration of the 2008 Olympics, few updates to this wiki were made.
