Welcome to "A for Athlete."

SKWIM Pittsburgh 2 040717

Our multi-language wiki of sports (terms, jargon and lingo) is for all athletes, everywhere that anyone can edit.

This A for Athlete project, associated with CLOH.Org (Creating Literate Olympians Here) is perking with efforts on a grant about playlists and pathways that stresses playing well with others.

A community-centric coach, journalist and publisher, Mark Rauterkus, seeks your input in gathering insights.

6,664 articles since May 2008.

Wikipedia has standards. This wiki has few.

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.
