Brisbane has managed to host the Olympics to be held in the year 2032. The possibilities of this were already being expressed but on Wednesday it was officially announced. Brisbane was officially declared the host after the IOC voted on Wednesday. The Olympic events will be held across the state of Queensland, including the city of Gold Coast which hosted the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Australia has previously hosted the Olympic Games in Melbourne in 1956 and Sydney in 2000. These games will return after 32 years in Australia. Brisbane will be the third city in Australia to host the Olympics after Melbourne and Sydney. Months before the official nod to IOC members at a meeting ahead of the Tokyo Games starting on Friday, the way for Australia's east coast city to become host was almost cleared.
Australian Prime Minister expressed happiness
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said in the video conference, 'Our government is proud that we have had the opportunity to host these Games in Brisbane and Queensland. The governments of Australia and Queensland are financially prepared to host the Games. We will organize the games in a great way. We know how the Olympic Games are organized. The Olympic Games will be held in Paris in 2024 and in Los Angeles in 2028. Brisbane is the first winner of the new bidding system.
In the new format, the IOC contacts potential contenders and selects them unopposed. In addition to reducing campaign costs, the process is designed to give the IOC more control and remove the threat of vote buying.
