World Selection Committee

The World Selection Committee is a panel of five individuals who choose which athletes will represent their country at the Olympic Games. They are appointed by the organizing committee of the games and must be highly qualified and experienced in their respective fields. The World Selection Committee reviews each athlete’s application and shortlists the best candidates. Any athlete who fails to meet these criteria will be disqualified from the Games for four years. The World Selection Committee is made up of five people from different countries.

The World Selection Committee comprises five members from each country. This committee must meet at least three times a year to review the shortlist and decide whether to accept the bid. At any time, the committee may change the shortlist. The shortlist is made based on criteria determined by the Committee. To be considered, an athlete must meet these criteria or be automatically disqualified from the Olympics for four years. Athletes must be physically fit and demonstrate high motivation to succeed.
