- What? The third edition of Wiki Loves Sport is organized to improve and extend content related to diversity in sport in general, and seen the period in which it takes place, Olympic & Paralympic Games in particular.

Wikipedians in any language of Wikipedia are invited to participate.
- When? The writing contest runs from 00:01 July 23th to 23:59 September 5th (UTC).
