Brisbane to host 2032 Olympics
Xtra Time Web Desk: Australia’s Brisbane on Wednesday was picked to host the 2032 Olympics by the International Olympics Committee. It will be the second time an Australian city will get an opportunity to host the Olympics. Last time Sydney hosted the Summer Games back in 2000.
“We know what it takes to deliver successful Games in Australia,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison told IOC voters in an 11-minute live video link from his office.
Paris will host the 2024 Games while 2028 Games will be held in Los Angeles.
The 2032 deal for the Australian east coast city looked done even months before the formal decision by IOC members at their meeting ahead of the Tokyo Games, which open on Friday. The IOC gave Brisbane exclusive negotiating rights in February. That decision left Olympic officials in Qatar, Hungary and Germany looking blindsided with their own stalled bidding plans.
