The World Selection Committee is responsible for selecting athletes to compete in the Olympic Games. A committee of five members from each country makes the shortlist. Athletes must meet a list of criteria in order to be chosen for the team. They must be highly qualified and have prior experience in the sport. If an athlete fails to meet the criteria, he or she will be disqualified from the team for four years. However, the World Selection Committee has many other duties besides the selection process.
A selection committee comprises of international experts in the fields of urban planning, design, and economic development. They will evaluate each bid according to a set of criteria. The committee will also evaluate whether the city has the capacity to organize an annual program of design events for citizens and to engage a large sector of the population in discussions about urban revitalization. Once a city has met the criteria, the selection committee will make its recommendation to the Board of Directors.
