The World Selection Committee selects athletes from different nations to represent them at the Olympic Games. The members are chosen according to their skill, personality, and overall athleticism. Athletes who fail to meet the criteria will be disqualified from competing for four years. The World Selection Committee meets at least three times a year and reviews its shortlist. Failure to meet one of these criteria will disqualify the athlete from competing for four years.
The Committee comprises distinguished individuals from different fields who are impartial and do not seek to be recognized by the media. Members are knowledgeable about diverse aspects of the agricultural sector, including nutrition, food processing, and distribution. They also have expertise in water and environmental issues. By ensuring an inclusive atmosphere in the Selection Committee, nominations from diverse groups are welcome.

Mikulak was the American’s top choice, cruising through the final five events. Whittenburg was also a strong finisher, locking up a world spot. But the team needs to have more steady hands if it wants to improve on its bronze medal last fall, or even make significant inroads against the mighty Japanese and Chinese teams. If the six-man team can’t make a dent in Japan and China, it will be difficult to do so.
Among the other notable people chosen by the committee are former presidents and Nobel Peace Prize Laureates. Bogota, the Hague, and Paris have all been selected to host One Young World in 2017.
