In selecting the arbitrators for the Rio 2016 Games ad hoc division, the ICAS ensured that all regions of the world have been considered, and that the selection of arbitrators is representative of the athletes taking part in the Rio 2016 Games. The ICAS notes that 46% of the athletes will be female (a figure which is expected to increase to 50% in Tokyo 2020), and accordingly, it has, for the first time taken the deliberate decision to recognize gender equality among the arbitrators appointed to comprise the Rio 2016 Games ad hoc division.
The selected arbitrators are all either lawyers, judges or professors specialized in sports law and arbitration who are independent of the parties who appear before the tribunal, and apply a procedure (set out in the Arbitration Rules for the Olympic Games) that complies with fundamental principles of procedural fairness and due process.
The location of the CAS office in Rio, together with the dates and times of its operations will be communicated in a separate release prior to the Games. In the meantime, any questions concerning the CAS ad hoc division for the Rio 2016 Games may be addressed to the Secretary General via the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
