Tokyo Olympics[edit]

Swept in from the pub

What do we usually do for the Olympics?

I could not find anything special about the 2012 London Olympics.

The main site for the Tokyo Olympics is an area of reclaimed islands, which is different from Tokyo/Odaiba, and for which Tokyo/Minato is probably too broad. By the way, the central Tokyo map shows it in an area called blueish-gray area which does not have a matching article. Nicolas1981 (talk) 07:43, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

Interesting question. The Brazil article doesn't even refer to the forthcoming Olympics, and the Rio de Janeiro article has only some high level references to them. --Andrewssi2 (talk) 09:45, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
Traditionally, all we've done is put an Olympics template on any bottom-level articles that have an Olympic venue. Template:Sochi2014 is the current one, but you can see how others like Template:London2012 were used in the article histories (example). LtPowers (talk) 14:10, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
We do have a general article for the Olympic Games which could be expanded, and there is also precedent for individual articles for events of a similar scale (see World Cup 2006, World Cup 2010, World Cup 2014, Expo 2005, Expo 2010). I think similar articles for Olympic Games 2014 etc. would be welcome. Texugo (talk) 15:24, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
There is an article London 2012, so I think that something like Tokyo 2020 ( or Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games 2020 but that is a bit of a mouthful) would be fine. I am also wondering if we should create Glasgow 2014 for the Commonwealth Games. AlasdairW (talk) 20:25, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
Just to correct Texugo's suggestion, a page would be called Olympic Games 2016, not 2014. --Andrewssi2 (talk) 08:46, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
Although there will be a Winter Olympics in 2014. --Andrewssi2 (talk) 08:47, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
I created the article Tokyo 2020. A map should be added using info form http://tokyo2020.jp/jp/plan/venue/ Nicolas1981 (talk) 10:20, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
I created Pyeongchang 2018 for the winter Olympics, since I was updated that region in South Korea anyhow. --Andrewssi2 (talk) 02:15, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
We have Olympic Games. Should the others be at Olympic Games/Tokyo2020 or some such? Pashley (talk) 13:17, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
I wondered that as well, although the article Olympic Games itself is not very clear in purpose right now, and simply links to Olympic cities.--Andrewssi2 (talk) 01:45, 19 October 2013 (UTC)
