Brisbane has formally won the bid to host the 2032 Summer Olympics.
The Australian city didn't have much competition as many of the other bids didn't get through the International Olympic Committee’s approval process.
Brisbane will become the third Australian host venue of the Games, following in the footsteps of Melbourne and Sydney.
