With Brisbane 2032, the Games return to the country that loves sport

TOKYO - The Brisbane Games guarantee one thing: if 2032 does not surprise the world with a new pandemic or similar catastrophe, the stands will be packed with people who understand and love sport. Few countries are as sporty and as athletic as Australia, that huge island that will host the Olympic Games for the third time in history.

Besides Melbourne 56, the memory of Sydney 2000 is the great parameter. Those days between September 15 and October 1 -the end of winter and the beginning of spring in the southern hemisphere- bring back the memory of Australian pop-rock delightfully bursting from the speakers in the huge, sunny, windy and often cool Olympic Park.

All eyes on Brisbane, but NRL grand final still just a dress rehearsal - 2Oct21 - Brisbane Times
 

  • Brisbane Organising Committee for the Olympic Games: this month Premier Anasatcia Palaszczuk will introduce legislation in State Parliament to set up BOCOG.
  • In just over decade from now, Brisbane will host the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games
  • “Not since Barcelona in 1992 has an Olympic host been better able to capitalise on hosting a Games,” Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk reminded everyone in her State of the State address on Thursday.
  • The multibillion-dollar City Deal between all levels of government needs to be sorted out.
  • All projects supporting the Games need to be identified, chosen, designed, approved, re-examined, tendered, built and tested.
  • Decisions on the Gabba upgrade need to made, along with the fast rail proposal after a lukewarm reception so far.
  • Brisbane City Council: Its Brisbane Metro megabus project might link to Brisbane Airport with its new international terminal by the time the Olympics roll around.
  • The Queensland government’s underground Cross River Rail project will better link the coasts and provide improved links to Brisbane sports and entertainment venues, although how much remains a matter of contention.
  • Transport Minister Mark Bailey said, in the first instance, it would make catching buses and trains to Olympic venues easier
  • “Commuters catching the train will be able to get from the CBD to the main Olympics stadium at the Gabba in less than five minutes, or get out of the Roma Street underground and head to the Brisbane Olympics venue that will be built in that precinct for the Games,” Mr Bailey said
