Brisbane to host 2032 Olympic games

The IOC has awarded the 2032 Olympic Games to Brisbane, the third game set to come down under.

Brisbane was unanimously proposed as the single candidate for 2032 by the International Olympic Committee's 15-strong executive board in June. 

IOC president Thomas Bach cited Brisbane's alignment with reforms and the Olympic agenda as among reasons for the city's successful bid.

"It's a very sustainable project and it's a project with a great legacy and it's project from a sports-loving nation and this is what it is all about, to see sports-loving Aussies facilitating the Olympic Games. I hope I can still make it till then to be there,'' he said.

The 80 IOC delegates in Tokyo voted 72 to 5 in favour of Brisbane, with three abstentions.
