Australian Brisbane wins bid to host 2032 Summer Olympics

Australia’s Brisbane won the bid to host the 2032 Summer Olympics and Paralympics. This city was the main candidate: this choice was previously called “preferred” by the IOC executive committee. Out of 80 people who voted 72 voted in favor, five – against.

The selection for the IOC was held according to a new procedure – without an application campaign. From now on, the corresponding decision – after consultation with the national Olympic committees and the governments of the countries – is taken by special commissions created as a result of the changes introduced to the Olympic Charter in 2019. Due to this, the costs of states for the development of the corresponding infrastructure are significantly reduced.

A joint application for the 2032 Olympics was previously submitted by South Korea and the DPRK. The Chinese cities of Chengdu and Chongqing, Qatari Doha, Hungarian Budapest and the German Rhine-Ruhr region also planned to do this.

In Australia, the games will be held for the third time: in 1956, the sports festival was held in Melbourne, in 2000 – in Sydney.

Good news for Brisbane was announced in Tokyo on the eve of the start of the 2020 Olympics here, which will be held from July 23 to August 8.
