Nominations can be made by National Olympic Committees, International Federations, Olympians, members of the IOC Athletes’ and Athletes’ Entourage Commissions and IOC Members, by 12 August 2018.

The candidate can be active or retired, the only requirement is that they have coached in at least one edition of the Olympic Games.
A selection panel composed of the Chair of the IOC Athletes’ Entourage Commission, two IOC Members of this Commission and two members of the IOC Athletes’ Commission will be appointed by the IOC President to select the winners, whose names will be announced during the Olympism in Action Forum in Buenos Aires on 5 and 6 October 2018.
