Isabelle Martin and I have spent several months working on a revision of the Olympics categories, which we would like have in place before the games take place this year. The structure is part of the [[Category:Sports]] which is not attached to a specific project. 

Here is the proposed new category structure for examination:

We tried to cover everything, but just in case we missed something, we welcome your input and ideas.

Thanks,
Natalie and Isabelle

Looks great Natalie and Isabelle :)

Thanks for putting this together.
Brilliant!!!
Very nice, simple and straightforward so no confusion will arise.  Great work you two.!
Great,

If you ever have a section about those who attended the olympic games as part of the British delegation my mother in law was at 1936 olympics but the 400m for women was not included. as an olympic event. Sprinting was supposed to be too far for women I have  a souvenir photo album and other memorabelia
Heather, I'm sure we can work that in in some fashion.

Looks good. At first glance there's nothing I could add. Only a question: Will the profiles that are in the current Olympic categories switched automatically or do I have to do that myself?

We will do the changes with EditBot when this is finalized. You should not have to do anything unless there are other categories you would like to add.

At the first glance I forgot that in the "Alternate Olympics" section also belong the Youth Olympics. They are for athletes of the age range 14-17.

It can be added, as long as it's IOC sanctioned (and it is!)
