Brisbane, in Queensland, Australia, has been confirmed as the host city for the 35th Summer Olympics in 2032.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) held the 138th General Assembly at the Okura Hotel in Tokyo, Japan on the 21st, two days before the opening of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and selected Brisbane, Australia, as the host of the 2032 Olympics.

This will make Australia the third Olympic Games to be held in Australia, after Melbourne in 1956 and Sydney in 2000.

The IOC previously designated Brisbane as the preferred negotiating city for the 2032 Olympics in February, and last month the executive committee unanimously decided Brisbane as the host of the event to be held 11 years later.

As the bid for Brisbane was virtually confirmed with the approval of the executive committee, the Seoul-Pyongyang joint event was also officially canceled.

The IOC gave high marks to the Brisbane Bidding Committee's cost-saving plan to use 84% of the stadium as existing facilities, and strong support from the Australian government, the Queensland government and the Australian people.

Meanwhile, after the Tokyo Olympics, the Olympics will be held in Paris, France in 2024 and Los Angeles, USA in 2028.
