The International Olympic Committee on Wednesday chose Brisbane to host the 2032 Olympics. Brisbane is the third Australian city to host the Games after Melbourne and Sydney.
Olympics official Twitter handle shared “It’s official! The Olympic Games are heading back to Australia for #Brisbane2032! Explore your future Olympics host right here. #FasterHigherStrongerTogether @AUSOlympicTeam”.
“The International Olympic Committee has the honour to announce that the Games of the 35th Olympiad are awarded to Brisbane, Australia,” IOC president Thomas Bach said after a vote in Tokyo.
IOC has now secured hosts for the next three Summer Olympics, with Paris holding the event in 2024 and Los Angeles holding the 2028 Games.
