‘Everyone should have the day off’: Olympic buzz excites Qld after Brisbane wins 2032 bid | ABC News

ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “‘Everyone should have the day off’: Olympic buzz excites Qld after Brisbane wins 2032 bid | ABC News” – below is their description.

There are still 4,019 days to go, but south-east Queenslanders are waking up to an Olympic buzz this morning, after Brisbane was announced as the host for the 2032 Games.

After six years of planning by Queensland authorities, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) delegates backed the river city to host the Games, with 72 votes to five.

Not bad for a city of just 2.56 million people.

IOC president Thomas Bach said it was the Australians’ passion and love for sport that really brought the bid over the edge.

“The Aussies really demonstrate it … you could feel it during the whole presentation, I could feel it even in my visit a couple of years ago to Queensland,” Mr Bach said.

“Second, it is a project which is absolutely in line with the IOC reforms — it’s a project of a sustainable Games in every respect.”
