Brisbane is almost certain to host the 2032 Summer Olympics and Paralympic Games after the International Olympic Committee announced that the bidding team would exclusively participate in negotiations

IOC President Thomas Bach said the committee’s board had accepted the recommendation of its so-called Future Host Commission and that Australia paved the way for Australia to host its third Olympics, after Melbourne in 1956 and Sydney in 2000, with the Brisbane Games going to be three Taking place decades after Australia’s last global tournament

The decision came after the Queensland team took advantage of the new bid rules, which allowed candidates to advance at their own pace and apply for promotion to the next stage, said John Coates, president of the Australian Olympic Committee and veteran the games

Most of the new rules were drafted by Mr. Coates, who also attended a key presentation to the IOC earlier this month

“You are in an ongoing dialogue with the IOC that you can accelerate They show that you have all the records, that you completed your plan, that you made all the connections, and that we did”At that point we asked if we could move on to a more focused dialogue that would give us the announced preferred status. There were five to six other cities there, but now there is only Brisbane”

A significant part of the success to date is due to the ability to have federal, state and local authorities working together smoothly, he said the venues will be spread across Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast and there will be two sporting villages, according to Coates 85 to 90 percent of the necessary infrastructure is already in place

The IOC was determined to say that however, the success of the Australian offering – six years in development – could not be guaranteed

Kristin Kloster Aasen, the head of the commission who made the recommendation to the IOC Board of Directors, said that if the Queensland offer fails to conclude successful negotiations within a set timeframe, it would fall out of its preferred position and into the position so-called continuous dialogue phase, which would bring it back into direct competition with other candidate cities

President of the International Olympic Committee, Thomas Bach: “After a very intensive discussion, the board unanimously accepted this recommendation Greg Martin / IOC

The IOC would not confirm competing bidders even in discussions about 2032, but it is believed that interest has come from places such as Doha, Budapest, the German Rhine-Ruhr region, China’s Chengdu and Chongqing, and Jakarta, Ms. Kloster Aasen however, said that Germany decided in February not to continue the process

She did not say how long it would be for the Brisbane-based offer to finalize negotiations, but did say that work to determine that would begin now

The decision is a huge win for Mr. Coates – also Vice President of the IOC – who has long been campaigning for an offer in Queensland for 2032 and describes it as “the last thing I want to achieve”

The decision immediately raised questions about a conflict of interest because of his leadership and long history in the Olympic Movement

“Mr. Coates has not participated in any discussion of the IOC Board of Directors about the reports of the future Hosting Commission or has made any direct or indirect reference to the 2032 Olympics,” said Mr. Bach

“And all of this is overseen by our compliance department, which at the beginning of each meeting clearly explains which member of the IOC senior management is conflicting over different interests and is therefore excluded from the discussions in question”

Chairman of the Council of Mayors (SEQ) and Lord Mayor of Brisbane, Adrian Schrinner, said the announcement was a vote of confidence in Brisbane and Southeast Queensland

“After many years of hard work by SEQ Mayors, it is amazing to hear that the International Olympic Committee recognizes that Southeast Queensland has what it takes to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games,” said Schrinner

Mr. Bach made the first announcement at a much-belated press conference that started at 7 p.m. local time and on Thursday at 5 a.m. Australian time on the east coast

“This commission recommended that the board hold a target dialogue with Brisbane 2032 and the Australian Olympic Committee for the 35th Games Record the Olympics, “he said
