Brisbane will host the 2032 Olympic Games.

It makes Australia the second country in the world after the U.S. to host the Summer Olympics in three different cities.

Australia first staged the games in Melbourne in 1956 before welcoming the new millennium with the Sydney Olympics in 2000, which was overwhelmingly considered one of the most successful games ever held.

The U.S first hosted the games in St. Louis in 1904, before Los Angeles and Atlanta followed in 1984 and 1996 respectively.

The Olympics will return to L.A. in 2028.

Brisbane, the capital of Queensland and Australia’s third-most populous city emerged as the preferred host in February.
