IOC to Vote On Brisbane as Host City for 2032 Olympics

The IOC executive board recommended Brisbane as the host site for the 2032 Olympics on Thursday. A vote will be held to confirm Brisbane as the host site in Tokyo in late July.

“Sport is seen by many governments around the world as essential to the long-term development of their countries and regions," IOC president Thomas Bach said in a statement. "The Brisbane 2032 Olympic project shows how forward-thinking leaders recognize the power of sport as a way to achieve lasting legacies for their communities.”

The 2000 Olympics were held in Sydney, Australia, which marks the second time the nation hosted an Olympic Games.
