Baghdad The International Olympic Committee has officially announced the selection of the Australian city of Brisbane to host the 2032 Olympic Games.
The members of the International Olympic Committee followed the recommendation of its Executive Board in electing Brisbane, which did not compete with another bid, during the 138th General Assembly of the International Olympic Committee held in Tokyo.
This comes before the start of the next Olympic Games in Tokyo, with the official opening ceremony.
Brisbane will be the third Olympic Games hosted by Australia after the 1956 Melbourne Olympics and the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, was lucky this time after it failed to compete with Barcelona, Spain, to host the 1992 Olympics.
Brisbane hosted the Commonwealth Games in 1982, and the 2018 edition of this tournament was held in the Australian city of Gold Coast, which will co-host with the Sunshine Coast some Olympic events in 2032.
