SELECTION
These days not anyone can compete in the Olympic games. In order to be admitted, athletes have to prove that they are well trained and capable of winning an Olympic medal, or even of reaching the final in their sport.A few months before games open athletes must pass selection tests organised in their own countries or else have obtained their ticket in the course of the last international competitions to be held before the Olympics.Once an athlete has passed the tests or acquired the minimum number of points for qualification that athletes own national committee gives its approval and validates the athlete's participation in the games.Thus in 1992, even though Carl Lewis was double Olympic 100 m champion he was excluded from the American selection because he had only come fifth in the national selection trials.
