Olympics Unleashed renewed in Queensland with 100,000 students and counting

Author imageAOC  5 May 2021

Queensland Sport Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said Olympics Unleashed brought many benefits to schools across the state.

“It’s important for students to get involved in programs like Olympics Unleashed from a young age to encourage them make healthier choices and a life-long commitment to leading active lives,” Mr Hinchliffe said.  “Helping Queenslanders to be more active more of the time starts with getting involved in sport from a young age.

“With the possibility of a Queensland Olympic Games in 2032, it was inspiring to talk with students at Taigum State School about their ideas for the future.”

Brisbane almost missed out to the Gold Coast as the centre of activities for the 2032 Olympics, reveals Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner.

Thankfully, common sense has prevailed and Brisbane’s Gabba will be at the heart of the 2032 Olympics and Paralympics Games, if our proposal to the International Olympic Committee is successful.

Cowboys open $40 million training centre

“The opening of the Cowboys’ High-Performance Centre is another important asset in the Palaszczuk Government’s continuing ‘targeted dialogue’ with the International Olympic Committee about Queensland as a potential host of 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.”

“It makes Townsville an attractive option for pre-Games training for competitors not only preparing for a possible 2032 Queensland Olympics, but also Paris in 2024 and the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics.”

Saturday 8 May 2021:

John Coates answers reporter’s questions on the Brisbane Bid progress

Part of a media conference primarily about Tokyo 2020 but with reporter’s questions on Brisbane 2032 which starts at 12:45 mins into the media conference:

12:45 Reporter’s Question (inaudible)

12:58 John Coates:    We’re exclusively the preferred candidate.  The IOC has parked the other cities.  They (the IOC) didn’t even tell me who all the others were. I’ve read a bit.  But they’ve parked them and on 25 February they (IOC) said, 

“From what we’ve read, from what Australia and Brisbane have submitted, a feasibility (study) by the Mayors of South East Queensland, a Value Proposition Assessment by the Queensland Government, further work by the AOC with all the International Federations. ...   we then did a presentation, as did the other cities, on the 8th of February and we got the nod then for .. they said, right this Bid’s ready to go to Targeted Dialogue and that’s an exclusive thing. 

So the others have been parked.  If we fell over, they would have an opportunity again.  We’re just going through now, it’s a very very detailed due diligence and we’ve got to get through that.

14:05 Reporter’s Question (inaudible)

14:20 John Coates:    No, you can’t say that (laughing).   We’ve got a lot of work to do, you know, submission of documentation, guarantees. I don’t want to tell you how many questions we received early last week to answer on Friday night, so it’s a lot of work.

14:30 Reporter’s Question:  Is it possible they could vote on Brisbane?

14:34 John Coates:  I don’t want to speculate. I won’t speculate because we’ve got to come through the diligence, it has to go to the IOC Executive Board and they’ll decide.   And I’m out of it. Recused.

Coates says Brisbane 2032 on "last lap" as IOC begins due diligence prior to awarding Games

Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) President John Coates says Brisbane 2032 is on the final lap, with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) conducting due diligence ahead of confirming the city as host of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Coates said confirmation of the funding, as well as the commitment to a shared governance model and an Olympic Infrastructure Authority, allowed Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to submit priority guarantees to IOC President Thomas Bach.

The AOC President said the IOC is now evaluating the project.

"IOC due diligence testing of every element of the Brisbane project is now underway," Coates said.

"If this diligence yields a positive final report, the proposal to host the Games in 2032 will go to a vote of the full IOC membership.

"Friends, this is the pathway for Brisbane to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2032.

"And the reality is this: for Brisbane and Queensland, the bell for the last lap has rung.

"We have final hurdles to clear before the tape is breasted.”

due to kids sport and family business i did alot of driving all over Brisbane this weekend including in the CBD and there was nothing to indicate we are close to getting 2032  - no "bid city" flags on light poles or anything. I would expect though that should we be awarded the games in July the rings will go up quickly

Yes I think that you might start to see some Olympic symbols or banners starting to appear after the final vote if it goes our way which it should.

Did you also mean the style of the massive big rings as was on Sydney Harbour Bridge in 2000?

Those might not appear for a while yet, probably around 2031-2032 (?). My guess is the Storey Bridge whenever they go up.

Could be a while for that as they don’t yet have a logo. Once the Games are awarded, then it should not be too long a wait for an official logo to emerge which would then go on all Banners, Flags, merchandise. I should think they will want to have this done reasonably quickly to maximise revenue from merchandise sales.

Usually there is a ‘candidate city logo’ during the bidding phase which is then superseded with a new updated whiz bang Logo some time after the Host City contract is signed.

But in Brisbane’s case, being the first Summer Games to be awarded under the new rules, there is no logo at all so far.  But not a concern.

On of the key decisions they will also need to announce once we’ve won the Games is what will the Games ‘be known’ ?

Will the Games Organising Committee want the 2032 Games to be known as:

Brisbane 2032  ?

Brisbane/SEQ 2032 ?

SEQ 2032 ?

Queensland 2032 ?

South East Queensland 2032 ?

etc etc

It would be the simplest solution, but the South East Queensland mayors might have a view on this as they were the impetus behind this Bid with their Feasability Study.

Bids covering  several regions can be tricky to name but Milano-Cortina 2026 have managed it.

Whether the state government wants to include ‘Queensland’ in the title somehow to share the love and ‘ownership’ remains to be seen I guess.

SEQ is a meaningless initialism outside of Australia. Either of Brisbane 2032 or Queensland 2032 would be fine, depending on whether you want to go the traditional route or emphasis the regional nature of these Games.

As for the logo, it's normally the case that it's unveiled 5 years prior to the Games, in the non-Olympic year before the preceding Games. I guess from the IOC's point of view it means they've not got a plethora of logos to be dealing with at any one time - there will only ever be a maximum of three 'in the wild' as it were. So that would put Brisbane on schedule for a 2027 unveiling.

LA28 has bucked this trend, however. So I guess we'll see if that was an anomaly of the start of a more relaxed attitude to the timing of logo launches from the IOC.
