Thomas Bach, President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), believes that the 2032 Summer Olympics in Brisbane will be an important event not only in the life of Australia but the entire Pacific region.
The German sports leader visited the host city for the first time since being granted the right to run it last year.
“I have recently been to several neighboring regions and based on that, I would argue that these Olympics will not only be for Australia but for the whole region. Everyone is excited, excited and excited,” Thomas Bach told reporters on Saturday.
Brisbane will be the third city in Australia to host five-ring matches, with Melbourne in 1956 and Sydney in 2000.
The IOC president attended an Olympic session at a local high school and then put it this way: The main challenge now is to maintain the momentum.
“We can see that the spirit of the Olympic Games is quite alive here in Brisbane, Queensland and Australia. The challenge in the next 10 years will be to preserve it and pass it on to the rest of the world,” said Thomas Bach.
The IOC leader also spoke about the five whose place remains uncertain on the program for the Los Angeles 2028 Games. Athletes filed a complaint with the IOC after the International Sports Federation Executive Committee announced in Budapest on Monday that a two-hurdle test would begin as part of a process to replace riding with a number. New after the Paris Olympics.
“We are waiting for the decisions of the International Federation, but we are also watching the process that is being taken, and our Executive Committee will make a decision at the end of the year, but no later than the beginning of next year,” said Thomas Bach.
