Australian city, Brisbane has been announced as the next host of the 2032 Olympics.
The announcement comes after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) endorsed its unopposed bid for the Games.
“This unanimous decision by the Executive Board is a credit to the years of work carried out by Brisbane 2032, the Australian Olympic Committee, and their partners, to test every aspect of the project,” the IOC said in a statement.
Speaking in Geneva, Switzerland, IOC President Thomas Bach said Brisbane’s track record in hosting large sporting competitions and broad political and public support for the event made the city’s bid “irresistible.”
“The future of the Games is bright,” Bach said.
The 2032 decision will be handed down by a committee of 100 IOC delegates on July 21, two days ahead of the Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony.
Australia has hosted the Olympic games twice previously,
Once at Melbourne 1956 and secondly at Sydney 2000.
