I'm hesitant about reviewing an article that consists of two sentences, considering most articles are required to have three paragraphs; I'm not sure the gallery is sufficient padding. There's also only one source. Microchip08 (talk) 03:44, 6 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]

I've added another paragraph to pad this out a bit. The one source thing shouldn't be a problem since this is Original Reporting. --RockerballAustralia c 06:15, 6 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]
I don't see length problems. I have issues with images lacking captions, so it's pretty hard to understand the timing and ingredients of the event. (The latter may be an issue with only me, as I lack basic sport events background many readers could already have.) Gryllida 08:24, 6 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]

I'm glad the second paragraph is there. Still, the text is clearly below minimal; I've tentatively marked this as a photo essay.
At first view, I'm not happy with the sourcing either; we generally try to have corroborating material. Amongst its other functions, it helps gauge newsworthiness. I'm still considering, as I move forward with the review. --Pi zero (talk) 12:11, 6 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]

How did I miss this I wonder? --RockerballAustralia c 12:32, 6 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]
