Brisbane bid unopposed.
It will be the first time that the Olympics will be held in Australia since Sydney 2000 and the event will follow the 2024 and 2028 editions in Paris and Los Angeles respectively.
Brisbane was bidding to host the Olympics unopposed and today’s decision in Tokyo had been seen as a formality. It was the only city on the International Olympic Committee ballot and just needed a majority of IOC support.
However, IOC communications director Mark Adams said earlier that “this is not a done deal because it’s still up to the session to decide. They can decide to put the issue back in the pot – there are still a number of interested cities.”
