3 × 3 basketball star Stefanie Dolson checks her Wikipedia page – NBC New York

They are world champions and some of the best at their sport, but that doesn’t mean people know everything about them, especially those who edit their Wikipedia pages.

Here are some members of Team USA reviewing their information on publicly edited sites, and seeing what is good and what is not. Be sure to check out all of the latest Tokyo action here.

Stefanie Dolson

She was a two-time NCAA Champion at UConn and a two-time WNBA All-Star, but Dolson always found errors on her page – including one of the teams she had listed her for as having played.

Carlin Islands

He’s one of America’s most famous rugby players and touted as “the fastest man in American rugby” so was Wikipedia really wrong about Isles birthplace?

Mattie Rogers

Rogers set – and broke – many American weightlifting records. But she is always asked questions about her (very brief) stint as a cheerleader, even though she has been a gymnast for much longer. And someone on Wikipedia needs to update their weight class!

Weightlifter Mattie Rogers opens his Wikipedia page to set the record straight before Tokyo 2020.

Ginny Fuchs

Fuchs is a three-time Louisiana Golden Gloves champion, but she didn’t start boxing to stay in shape for cross country in college – as she had already been kicked from the team by then! (And yes, she did test positive for a banned substance due to sex.)

Ginny Fuchs takes a look at her Wikipedia page before heading to Tokyo to compete in this year’s Olympics.

Kyle snyder

Wikipedia is correct when it says Snyder was the youngest Olympic gold medalist and the youngest world champion in American wrestling history. And while it’s also correct that he went 179-0 in high school, he wouldn’t mind if a detail about a withdrawal was removed.
