The World Selection Committee is a body that selects athletes from different countries for the Olympic Games. This group meets at least three times a year to choose the best athletes from each country. The criteria used to select these athletes are extremely stringent. Any athlete who does not meet these criteria will not be allowed to compete in the Olympics.
The World Selection Committee is made up of five members. Each country is required to nominate a member of the committee. The members of the selection committee are usually experts in the sport they are responsible for. In order to qualify for a spot on the World Selection Committee, candidates must have relevant experience. They should also be able to handle the responsibility of the position.
The five members of the selection committee were traditionally selected from five cricket zones. But the BCCI has opted to remove its zonal system and replace it with a new, five-man selection committee. The change has been welcomed by many players, including current national coach Kapil Dev.
The Selection Committee consists of a Chair and a Secretary. The Chair, who is also an advisor, works with the members to reach a consensus. The Secretary makes four copies of every proposal and then distributes them to the members of the committee. The Chair reviews the proposals to determine which are the most significant and which ones should be passed on to the full committee. The final decisions are then taken by the full committee.
The criteria used by the World Selection Committee are very strict. Any athlete who fails to meet these criteria will be disqualified for four years. The athletes who do meet these requirements are automatically included in the team. However, there are instances when the committee decides not to include an athlete. For example, Jordan Chiles did not make the senior development team.
In addition to meeting these criteria, the athlete must also be the top athlete in their country. These qualifications are in place to ensure that the Olympics are a fair and competitive competition. Athletes who fail to meet these criteria are also not eligible to participate in the next Olympic Games. The World Selection Committee ensures that all athletes have a fair chance to participate in the Olympics.
The selection committee met on August 20. In the meetings, the group discussed the top six ranked athletes, and then selected the remaining seven. The decision was unanimous. The remaining three athletes were evaluated based on their age groups and D-scores.
The top five ranked athletes had already been named to the team. The selection committee then considered the D-scores of the remaining athletes, including the two highest D-scores for each age group. After making these decisions, the team then reviewed the all-around rank order from each national championships. The committee determined that the next three selection spots had been filled by the top three all-around performers at the championships.
