John Coates outlines ambition for 2032 Olympic Games in Brisbane

John Coates outlines ambition for 2032 Olympic Games in Brisbane
March 22, 2021

Australian and International Olympic Committee official John Coates has provided more detail into Brisbane's bid to host the 2032 Olympic Games in an address to the Committee for Brisbane 2033 Legacy Taskforce.

On Friday, Coates, the President of the Australian Olympic Committee and Vice President of the International Olympic Committee, presented the Committee for Brisbane 2033 Legacy Taskforce policy paper: Our 2033 Olympic and Paralympic Legacies - Liveability Issues and Opportunities Paper, addressesing the sustainability of hosting the Games in Brisbane in 2032.

Explaining how sustainability would be managed in preparation for and during the Games, Coates explained "as the first Games which are both carbon neutral and generate zero waste... Brisbane will have eyes on both the podium and the gentle earth it stands upon. I regard that as real leadership in action.

"It is not a done deal. There is much work to be done. It may well be Queensland’s time. And if so, you’ve earned it. You’ve planned for it. You’ve fought for it," he said of Brisbane's 2032 candidature.

"If you are selected to host the Games, at the Opening Ceremony alone, the eyes of more than one half of the world’s population will look into your home and ask: what is life like there?"
