Brisbane, Australia, will host the Games of the XXXV Olympiad in 2032 after being elected at the 138th IOC Session on Wednesday (21 July) in Tokyo, Japan.
The Session, operating under strict coronavirus protocols, accepted the proposal of the IOC Executive Board, made on 11 June, that Brisbane should host the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games in 2032.
IOC President Thomas Bach did not vote, as per tradition which sees presidents vote only to break a tie. IOC Members in Australia John Coates and James Tomkins were not allowed to vote.
Previously, IOC Future Host Commission submitted a report to the EB on its Targeted Dialogue with Brisbane 2032, which was opened on 24 February.
Brisbane 2032 was the first “Preferred Host” under the IOC’s new approach to host city elections.Read Olympics
