What the Coast will get from the 2032 Olympic bid for south east Queensland

The Gold Coast is on track to get up to nine sports and an athletes village out of the 2032 Olympic Games.

But in a shock move the Gold Coast City Council is pulling out of the lead lobbying group the Council of Mayors, deciding to go it alone so it can secure “city deals” like light rail extensions to the Gold Coast airport.

The decision will save ratepayers $900,000 across the next three years, but more importantly it signals Mayor Tom Tate is confident the Coast can secure its Olympic sports program and an athletes village — along with much-needed transport infrastructure.

The official branding is about to be confirmed with the Games to be called “Brisbane 2032” and “B32”, despite starting as a southeast Queensland bid. An announcement by the International Olympics Committee on the host city could be made as early as late this week.

A feasibility study funded by the Council of Mayors found Brisbane would get 53 per cent of the sports, with the Coast likely to secure race walks and the marathon, basketball and football preliminary finals, handball and golf.

Council sources believe the city could also host hockey and surfing.

They say the Coast will be home to a satellite athletes village at Robina on State Government land near the shopping centre, a legacy project adding apartment accommodation.

Are the executive meetings broadcaster on Olympic channel or is that just for Olympic sessions?

IOC EB Meetings aren’t broadcast. There is a press conference after each one that can be accessed via the IOC Media YouTube Channel.

IOC Sessions are generally broadcast to the same channel and Olympic Channel.

Looking at the branding and the 'name' of the Games, the following name trademarks have been registered with IP Australia

 

Brisbane 2032

Queensland 2032

Interesting too is that The Courier Mail is running a story about        

                           “Brisbane 2032”

                          and

                               ”B32”

Not sure how I feel about ‘B32’.   Here’s an excerpt from the media report:

I presume the cycling rod racing will be on the Gold Coast/Hinterland? Maybe it could start in Brisbane and head to the GC, often the first stretch is just a long 'warm up' run.....

 

 

it will be on the sunny coast according the feasablity study

That would be similar to GC2018 or LA28

'Queensland 2032' would've been good for its branding due to its venues, but 'Brisbane 2032' works well, despite the fact that some events will be held across Queensland, rather than only in Brisbane.
