What is Wiki Loves Sport?
Wiki Loves Sport is a campaign for writing on Wikipedia and other wiki projects about athletes biographies, sports, teams, competitions or other items related to sport. The 2020 edition is a multilingual online edit-a-thon that takes place during what should have been the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic (from 24 July to 9 August 2020) and Summer Paralympic Games (from 25 August to 6 September), postponed to 2021 due to the emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The campaign is cross-wiki, so you can contribute to the event not only by writing articles on Wikipedia. You can create new Wikidata items, or upload on Commons photos released under free licenses on Commons. You can decide to write an article on Wikinews or add a new entry on Wikiquote. You can also choose to add categories, to do the "dirty work" or to teach someone how to edit the Wikimedia projects. Every single act is valuable.
