Tokyo, Jul 21 (UNI) The Australian city of Brisbane will host the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced here on Wednesday.
The city won the right to host the Summer Olympics in a vote at the 138th session of the IOC here, two days before the opening ceremony of Tokyo 2020.
It will be the third time Australia has hosted the Olympics after Melbourne in 1956 and Sydney in 2000.
In 2017, the IOC awarded the 2024 Games to Paris and the 2028 Olympics to Los Angeles.
The Australian city was named the preferred bidder earlier this year and was proposed by the IOC executive board in June.
