Our International OCR Committee is a collective of prominent and well-informed OCR media figures, who were chosen specifically for their knowledge, their impartiality, and their passion for OCR.
The International OCR Committee contributes to the OCR World Championships Top 10 OCR Athletes Rankings system. In addition to consistently reviewing results, our members have regular conversations together, sharing pertinent performances from their region, discussing these and anything else that might affect their decisions. With votes being cast monthly by the committee, this system aims to rank athletes worldwide who are unable to compete against each other, before they compete head-to-head at the World Championships taking place in October 2019. This initiative marks the first time athletes are ranked across multiple brands worldwide.
