Brisbane, Australia will host the 2032 Olympic Games | Olympic News
In June of this year, the 15-member IOC Executive Committee unanimously proposed that Australian cities be the only candidates for 2032.
After the International Olympic Committee (IOC) approves the recommendations of its executive committee, the Australian city of Brisbane will host the 2032 Summer Olympics.
Thomas Bach, President of the International Olympic Committee, said after voting in Tokyo, the capital of Japan: “The International Olympic Committee is honored to announce that the right to host the 35th Olympic Games has been granted to Brisbane, Australia.”
The Brisbane representative who announced the news cheered at the IOC meeting and set off fireworks in Australian cities, where people gathered to wait for the vote.
In June, after 15 IOC executive committees unanimously proposed that Brisbane be the only candidate for 2032, Brisbane’s victory seemed certain.
This means that Brisbane will become the third Australian city to win the Olympic Games after Melbourne in 1956 and Sydney in 2000.
Its bid involves 32 venues, most of which have already been completed.
