The Australian city of Brisbane on Wednesday secured the hosting rights for 2032 Summer Olympics in the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) voting in the 138th session, two days ahead of the opening ceremony of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Australia had earlier hosted the Olympics twice. It was held in Melbourne in 1956 and in Sydney in 2000. Let us tell you that in 2024, Paris and 2028 Los Angeles will host the Olympics.
In February 2021, the IOC said that Brisbane would be given priority to host the Olympics in 2032, Xinhua reported. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said. “It’s a historic day not just for Brisbane and Queensland, but for the entire country. Only global cities can secure the Olympic Games – so this is fitting recognition for Brisbane’s standing across our region and the world. It also marks an important leap forward for Australia as we look toward major events that lock in economic growth and social benefits that will echo for years to come.”
IOC issues a statement in this regard:
The IOC Executive Board (EB) decided in June to propose Brisbane to host the 2032 Olympics. “Following the recommendation of the Future Host Commission for the Olympiad Games. It has been decided that IOC members will vote at the 138th session in Tokyo on 21 July 2021,” the IOC said in an official statement.
“We know what it takes to deliver a successful Games in Australia,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison told International Olympic Committee voters in an 11-minute live video link from his office. Let Brisbane be the first winner of the new bidding system. The IOC selects some strong countries to host the Olympic Games.
