Brisbane to host 2032 Olympics, announces IOC

The Australian city of Brisbane will host the 2032 Summer Olympics, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced on Wednesday.

Australia has already hosted the Olympics twice – in Melbourne in 1956 and Sydney in 2000.

Earlier, the IOC had awarded the 2024 Games to Paris and the 2028 Olympics to Los Angeles.

Earlier this year, the world body had said that Brisbane was the preferred candidate to host the 2032 Games.

After the development, Australia Prime Minister Scott Morrison told IOC voters in an 11-minute live video link from his office: “We know what it takes to deliver a successful Games in Australia.”

The Olympic events will be staged across the state of Queensland, including in Gold Coast, which hosted the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
