The 2032 Summer Olympics will take place in Brisbane, Australia. This choice was made by the members of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) at the 138th General Assembly in Tokyo, where the 32nd Olympiad will open on Friday, which has been postponed by a year. It will be the 35th Summer Games and the 19th Paralympics in Olympic history – and the third Down Under.
The Rhein Ruhr City initiative, led by sports and event manager Michael Mronz, was also interested in hosting the games in eleven years. However, the responsible IOC evaluation commission (Future Host Commission) decided on Brisbane in the state of Queensland as a favorite in February. The opening ceremony is scheduled to take place on July 24, 2032.
Third Olympic Games in Australia
The IOC then entered into a “targeted dialogue” with the metropolis on the Australian east coast, which had already applied for the 1992 Games to no avail. A fight vote, which from the IOC’s point of view produced too many losers in the past, was thus superfluous.
Australia will host the Summer Games for the third time after Melbourne (1956) and Sydney (2000). Just four years ago, in a historic double decision, the IOC awarded the 2024 and 2028 Summer Games to Paris and Los Angeles, respectively. (SID)
