The 2032 Olympics will be held in Brisbane, Australia. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced this at the Games in Tokyo, which will be officially opened on Friday.
The IOC already announced at the beginning of this year that Brisbane was the so-called preferred candidate. This system was introduced to prevent bid cities from spending large amounts of money on promoting themselves.
Several IOC members have been bribed in the past. Jakarta, Doha, Istanbul, Budapest, New Delhi, Saint Petersburg and Chengdu had also expressed interest in hosting the 2032 Games.
It is Australia’s third time hosting the Games after Sydney in 2000 and Melbourne in 1956. The Games in 2024 are in Paris and four years later in Los Angeles.
