ITU announces the TO Selection for Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics

ITU is pleased to announce the complete selection of Technical Officials for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. There will be 42 National Federations represented on one or both Olympic and Paralympic Games, and 47% of the Officials selected are female, the highest percentage in history for ITU.

With potential candidates being Level 2 and Level 3 officials as of January 2019, the National Federations pre-selected a total of 146 International Technical Officials. The ITU Technical Committee and the Technical Delegates has approved the list of 28 names for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and 27 for the Paralympics.

In a significant move to push for gender balance within our sport, ITU has selected 12 female out of the 28 Olympic Games Officials and 13 out of 27 in the case of the Paralympic Games.

All five Continents are represented in this selection, with Technical Officials coming from countries with a very strong tradition in the sport but also from new development countries. Several National Federations will send Technical Officials without any representation in the previous edition of the Games in Rio – in some cases even in any previous editions – such as Barbados, Bahrain, Chinese Taipei, Germany, Mauritius, Romania, Serbia, St Kitts and Nevis, Sweden and Trinidad and Tobago.

There will be 16 International Technical Officials in both Olympic and Paralympic Games, without any former experience on such level of competitions, which shows the growth of competent officials in the last years.

The ITU has also selected the Medical Delegate for both events, who will be Dr. Sergio Migliorini (ITA) for the Olympic Games and Dr. Doug Hiller (USA) for the Paralympic Games.

Also, the Japanese Federation has selected the National Technical Officials for both events, with 50% of the elected being female.

In both Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Technical Officials will join the team of formerly selected Technical Delegates of Melody Tan, Jorge Garcia and Thanos Nikopoulos.
