Brisbane gets one step closer to hosting the 2032 Olympics with a vote in less than two months
Brisbane has come one step closer to becoming the third Australian city to host the Summer Olympics, with a date with lot on July 21.
The board of the International Olympic Committee on Thursday proposed the Queensland capital to host the 2032 Games, with the choice to vote next month.
Brisbane was chosen as the preferred host in February and the board’s proposal now heads to the IOC session, which will take place before the Tokyo Olympics next month.

IOC President Thomas Bach said the decision is now in the hands of IOC members, who will vote on July 21.
“We have seen many months of hard work and collaboration between three levels of government to get Brisbane 2032 for the IOC members who will make the final decision next month,” John Coates, president of the Australian Olympic Committee, said in a statement.
‘It is the members we have to convince of the merits of our ambition to organize the Summer Olympics for the third time.
“We have our deal with destiny.”
If the negotiations are successfully concluded, Brisbane would become the third Australian city to host the Games, after Melbourne in 1956 and Sydney in 2000.
