The World Selection Committee is responsible for choosing athletes to represent their countries at the Olympic Games. The Committee meets three times a year and has the power to disqualify any athlete if he or she fails to meet the criteria. These criteria are very stringent and aim to ensure that athletes represent their country in the best possible way.
To select the best candidates, the selection committee focuses on the overall quality of the applicants. This can be a challenge, given the lack of data about post-award activities. It is important to ensure that the selection committee is working to ensure that applicants are world-class and demonstrate potential to be leaders. Having a diverse selection committee is critical.
