Olympics to reheat council push for underground Brisbane Metro station

Lord mayor Adrian Schrinner has raised capacity concerns over the above-ground design for his council’s flagship Brisbane Metro stations south of the CBD, after “settling” on the option with the state government last year.

The site of the Cultural Centre station has been a long-running sore point between the two levels of government, now set to re-emerge should the Queensland capital win hosting rights for the 2032 Olympic Games next month.

Sunshine Coast transport strategy needs rethink

The head of a leading community group says the looming success of a Brisbane 2032 Olympic bid means the Coast must rethink its regional transport plan.

 

The head of the region's leading residents' association says a transport rethink is needed as a 2032 Olympic bid rapidly gains momentum.

Organisation Sunshine Coast Association of Residents (Oscar Inc) president Melva Hobson said the Sunshine Coast Council needed to revisit its regional transport strategy and assess what was feasible, given the Olympic bid was on the cusp of success. 

The Brisbane bid, which would deliver events and facilities in the region, was progressed to the final assessment and vote phase by the International Olympic Committee last week, meaning a green light could be just weeks away.

Brisbane, Australia Set To Be Announced As Host Of 2032 Olympics All But Guaranteeing Surfing’s Inclusion for the Next Decade

“Surfing, you are certainly aware, is set to make its grand Olympic debut in just weeks. Tokyo’s Chiba will see Jeremy Flores, Kolohe Andino, Sally Fitzgibbons, Italo Ferreira, maybe Kelly Slater battling it out for gold it what should be “small and funky” waves.” 

“After Tokyo, the Games moves to Paris for 2024 and the host nation has already declared surfing will be included, taking place in “France across the Water” i.e. Teahupoo, Tahiti.  Incredible potential.”

“In 2028, the 5-ring circus travels to Los Angeles and it is impossible to think that surfing will not also be on the menu there too. Malibu? World Surf League CEO’s own Manhattan Beach? Lower Trestles?”

“And now, just moments ago, Brisbane, Australia was announced as a shoo-in for the 2032 Olympiad.“

“Beautiful Brisbane in the shadow of Surfers Paradise, a stone’s throw from Coolie Kid, and of course we’ll be there, each and every one of us, cheering Joel Parkinson’s children to gold.”

Moreton Bay Region Pulling No Punches in Olympic Proposal

Mayor Peter Flannery said securing the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games would help market Moreton Bay Region to the world, with our region planned to host the Olympic boxing event.

“I’m pumped to announce that if the Brisbane 2032 proposal is successful ours will be one of the regions getting major infrastructure investment, with an Olympic quality venue to be built here at The Mill site in Petrie,” he said.

“This would have huge legacy benefits for our region by activating The Mill Priority Development Area during the Games and providing a brand new community facility that could be used to host a multitude of indoor sports, exhibitions, trade shows, festivals, community groups and much more.

Brisbane winning the Olympics is the wake-up call Sydney needs

With Queensland set to hold an Olympic Games in the near future, Sydney should use that as a wake-up call to reinvent a vision for its future.

 

Queensland landing the Olympic Games could just be the best thing to happen to Sydney in years.

Because, while Sydney is indisputably the best city in Australia, we need a serious kick up the rear to start imagining what we want our city to offer a decade from now.

Sydney, blessed with the best natural beauty and assets of any major city in the world, has a terrible habit of resting on its laurels.

And a Queensland multibillion-dollar investment in sports infrastructure and tourism razzle dazzle might be just what we need in order to level up.

Olympics in Brisbane or no Olympics in Brisbane, Sydney needs to lift its game.

Brisbane 2032, not yet designated but already victorious

Thomas Bach can rub his hands together: he will leave the IOC presidency in 2025, with the house in perfect working order. The Olympic body will no longer have to worry about running out of candidates to organise the Games. At least for the summer.

The German leader announced it on Thursday, June 10th, at the end of the last day of the Executive Board meeting: the city of Brisbane will be proposed to the 138th IOC Session, meeting on July 20th-21st in Tokyo, to host the Games in 2032. Brisbane alone. The deal is done, therefore, even if we will have to wait for the formal approval of the IOC members to write it down.

After Paris 2024 and Los Angeles 2028, the IOC will tick a new box. It will also serve as a reference by awarding an edition of the Games 11 years and a few weeks before the event.

Let’s be clear: the IOC Executive Board’s decision came as no surprise. Australia has always been in the lead.

That post was from a Sydney newspaper.

There is a bit of friendly rivalry between some of the cities on the east coast so I suspect this is a bit of that huffing and puffing.

“Let’s party like it’s 2032” Coast to install big screen for live Olympics announcement

Quote

 

Gold Coasters will be able to come together next month to watch live as the announcement is made on who will host the 2032 Olympics.

Council is forking out $270,000 from the city reserve to host an exciting ‘live site’ party at Kurrawa from July 21.

The celebration will feature fireworks, kids activities, sporting competitions, live entertainment, and the all-important announcement which will be beamed live on a big screen in the park.

 

“We are all waiting in the hope that the South East Queensland region will be announced as host destination for the 2032 Olympics,” Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate said.

“The official advice will come through from Tokyo between 6-7pm but we want people there in Kurrawa Park after school, or work, to enjoy the free activities from 4pm.

“This is a chance to witness history if we do get the green light,” Mayor Tate said.

If Brisbane is confirmed as the lucky city for the 2032 Olympics, the coast will host 14 different events across seven facilities.

Sports include weightlifting, volleyball, beach volleyball, judo, wrestling, golf, triathlon, aquatic (swimming marathon) and football prelims.

The ‘live site’ at Kurrawa will remain in place for the duration of the whole Tokyo Olympics, from July 21 to August 8, so Gold Coasters can watch all of the action on the big screen.

Thing is there's almost no buzz leading into the announcement at all. It's still a month away but still ...
