There are two levels where the participation process is different:

International level - In order to participate in the Olympics an individual competitor must be from a country with a recognized National Olympic Committee (the IOC formally recognizes 201 national committees).

Individual Competitor Level - In this the competitor must be selected to go by the various selection processes of the country they represent.
