Planned useTo determine the number of medals or awards received by a person, would be used as a qualifiers in an event such as Olympic


A person can receive multiple awards such as multiple Gold medal on the same Olympic event, such as Michael Phelps Michael Phelps (Q39562) who received 28 medals in total. But only 13 awards can be counted on the item page, because there's no qualifier that shows how many Gold medals he received on the same Olympic event. It's possible for an athlete in Olympic games to receive multiple Gold medals on the same Olympic event. This need to be added so that we can answer question like How many medals has Michael Phelps won in 2012 Olympic Games ? Total 6 (4 Gold, 2 Silver). It will be even better if it can get more specific of How many GOLD medals has Michael Phelps won in 2012 Olympic Games ? Answer : 4 . Currently, it's not possible to answer/retrieve this type of question.
