Athletes are selected for the Olympic Games by the World Selection Committee, a five-member panel that meets three times a year. The members are senior athletes and sports experts with expertise in different areas. They are chosen based on specific criteria, which can change at any time. It is important that the athletes chosen are qualified and have relevant experience. They must also be able to handle the responsibilities that come with the position.
The selection process involves several stages. The World Selection Committee meets three times a year, and evaluates all the applications submitted by athletes. If an athlete does not meet the criteria, they will be disqualified for four years. However, if they meet the criteria, they will be able to compete in the Olympic Games.
