See already epsilon 740. The present entry derives from Harpokration s.v.
"The Olympic hellanodikai were appointed for a single festival from the leading families of Elis: they presided over the games, exercising disciplinary authority over the athletes, and over the banquet which ended the festival" (OCD(4) p.655).
[1] Harpok. assigns this material to Aristotle (fr. 492 Rose).
[2] FGrH 414 F2. (In Harpok. the phrase reads one "to" each tribe.)
