How about a project for the Olympic Games?

With the Olympic Games coming up, I thought it would be neat to have a project for the Olympics.  Basic categories for the Summer Olympics already exist and there are some athletes listed in the categories.  There is nothing that I could find on the Winter Olympics.  Maybe this could be a subproject under the Notables Project.

I found the following people marked in WikiData and in WikiTree that has been part of a Olympic game

Please let me know if you find more....

I heard today that the Russian team may be banned from competing this year.  That pretty much makes the Olympics meaningless this year (just like in 1980)!  :(

I guess there is not too much interest, so far.  Here is a couple of profiles I have been working on.  I have tried to add as much genealogical information as possible.

There doesn't appear to be too many profiles for Olympians, so there is a lot that could be added to WikiTree.

 

 

 

Thanks for the links I will update at WikiData if noone has done it 

Looks like just from USA who has been part at the olympics are more than 8000+ people
