Without A Rival Bid, Brisbane Has Been Chosen To Host The 2032 Olympics.


TOKYO (AP) — Brisbane was chosen Wednesday as the unavoidable winner of a one-city race steered by the International Olympic Committee to avoid competing bids.

The Olympics will return to Australia 32 years after the popular Sydney Olympics in 2000, with Melbourne hosting in 1956.

“We know what it takes to deliver a successful Games in Australia,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison said in an 11-minute live video link from his office to International Olympic Committee members.

Brisbane will follow 2028 host Los Angeles in receiving 11 years to prepare for the Games, with Paris hosting in 2024.

Even months before the formal decision by IOC members at their meeting ahead of the Tokyo Olympics, which begin Friday, the deal for the Australian east coast city appeared to be done.

In February, the IOC granted Brisbane exclusive negotiating rights, leaving Olympic officials in Qatar, Hungary, and Germany stunned by their own stalled bidding plans.

Brisbane was the first winner in a new bidding format that allows the IOC to approach potential candidates and select them uncontested prior to the previously mandated seven-year advance mandated in Olympic contests.

The simplified procedure was designed to reduce campaign costs, give the IOC more control, and eliminate the risk of vote-buying.

Olympic events will be held throughout Queensland, including on the Gold Coast, which hosted the Commonwealth Games in 2018.
