  • Symbol opinion vote.svg Comment: It's possible she passes WP:ATHLETE, but I can't figure out how from the article, and I don't think she passes any other notability guideline, so I can't accept this at this time. SportingFlyer T·C 06:28, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol opinion vote.svg Comment: I think I might be ready to accept this article after my improvements on it, but could you please tell me of possible articles that can link to this one, so that is doesn't become an orphan? Thank you! – John M Wolfson (talkcontribs) 05:18, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
