Yes, but the description is measuring width, not length. In this case, the 3 gorges is only about 115 meters, vs 221 meters for the Hoover. The description is still wrong though, the Zhiguli Dam in Russia is about 750 meters wide and there may be others that are wider (seeing as the Zhiguli was completed in the 50s).

An optimist believes we live in the best world possible; a pessimist fears this is true.
