The World Selection Committee is made up of five people who meet monthly in Washington, D.C. and chooses the national Olympic teams. They are responsible for making the final decisions about the athletes, but they can change the criteria at any time. The committee meets at least three times a year and changes its short list if a candidate does not meet their requirements. Athletes that did not make the short list are not eligible to compete for the next four years.
The World Selection Committee is made up of four members from each country. They are usually a senior athlete and a sports expert from the country. Each country must nominate a national representative to sit on the World Selection Committee. The committee meets once a year, in March. Once a year, they meet in Washington, DC and consult with the organizing committee. A member of the World Selecting Commission must be a resident of the host nation and not have ties with another member.
The World Selection Committee will meet before the beginning of the Olympic games to determine who will be chosen to compete in each sport. They will evaluate the past performances of all candidates in order to determine who will go on to the Olympic games. This decision will be made by the Committee without specific criteria. Once a candidate has been selected, the World Selection Team will submit a shortlist to the organizing committee. The shortlist of athletes will be sent to the organizing committee for evaluation.
Applications must be sent to SILAS before the deadline, which is January 20. Once accepted, they must be lodged in SILAS’ archive. Applicants must include original datasets and documents, publications, letters, and other outputs, including recorded interviews. The documents, publications, and letters submitted must be in English and Spanish. During this period, the World Selection Committee will review the applications. This process is time-consuming and a thorough review of all applications is essential.
The FIFA selection committee’s criteria are similar to those of the Olympics. The selection committee members must be citizens of the country that the Olympic games will be held in. In addition, they must be residents of that nation. A city’s bid will be evaluated based on its ability to mobilize large segments of the population. The Committee will also evaluate the city’s capacity to host design events and foster dialogue on urban revitalization strategies. Unlike in previous years, it is not mandatory to be a member of a soccer association to host the Olympics.
The process of selection is more transparent than ever. The selection committee should have the highest ranking proposals based on the criteria. In addition, the Committee’s members should be transparent. By adopting a decision, the committee can award grants to the most worthy projects. The results of the process are reported to the Advisor and to the Secretary of the Committee. After the nominations are made, the members of the Selection Committee will rank the proposals according to the criteria and decide which one is worth funding.
