Brisbane, Australia won the right to host the 2032 Summer Olympics. It is the third city in Australia to host the Olympics after Melbourne and Sydney. After the United States, Australia has become the second country in the world to host the Olympic Games in three cities.
The International Olympic Committee announced its decision at a plenary meeting held in Tokyo, Japan. Australian Prime Minister Morrison said through a video conference that Australia knows how to host a successful Olympics, describing today as a historic day for Brisbane, Queensland and the whole country.
China, Indonesia, Hungary, Qatar and Germany have earlier expressed their intention to bid for the 2032 Olympics. The new procedure adopted by the International Olympic Committee did not openly allow candidate cities to compete with each other. Brisbane was reported to have been listed as the first choice in February this year.
The next 2024 Summer Olympics will be hosted by Paris, France. Los Angeles, USA will host the 2028 Olympic Games.
