The state of Queensland in Australia’s North is one step closer to hosting the 2032 olympics.
Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, has won approval to host the olympics in 11 years time.
The International Olympic Committee says the sunshine state has favourable climate conditions and has hosted international events before.
The decision essentially guarantees that Brisbane will be officially anointed the host city when IOC members cast their vote on July 21.
IOC president Thomas Bach said the board looked “in depth in all aspects of Brisbane 2032” as well as “the strong support across the entire political spectrum in Australia”.
“The Brisbane 2032 Olympic project shows how forward-thinking leaders recognise the power of sport as a way to achieve lasting legacies for their communities.”
The tokyo olympics are set to be held next month after being delayed due to covid-19.
Should the Tokyo Olympics go ahead?
As Japan struggles to contain its fourth wave of COVID-19 infections, there is overwhelming public opposition in the country to the Summer Games going ahead this year.
Japan’s Asahi Shimbun, an official partner of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, has this week called for the Games to be cancelled.
But with the opening ceremony scheduled to take place in under two months, is it too late for the major sporting event to be postponed, or even cancelled altogether?
Stephen Nagy, a Senior Associate Professor in the Department of Politics and International Studies at the International Christian University in Tokyo, spoke with Ticker News.

Amazon targets bankrupt Diamond Sports for streaming rights
Amazon considers acquisition of Diamond Sports as part of its plan to expand streaming portfolio
Sources suggest that Amazon is eyeing the streaming rights for major sports leagues including MLB, NBA, and NHL, signalling the tech giant’s strategic move into the lucrative world of live sports broadcasting.
The potential deal with Diamond Sports would provide Amazon with a significant foothold in the sports streaming market, allowing the company to offer a comprehensive range of live sports content to its Prime Video subscribers.
This move aligns with Amazon’s broader strategy to diversify its entertainment offerings and attract a wider audience. The acquisition of streaming rights for popular sports leagues could make Amazon a major player in the competitive streaming landscape.
Industry experts speculate that Amazon’s interest in Diamond Sports is driven by the desire to capture the growing market for live sports streaming, a segment that has gained immense popularity in recent years.
The acquisition would not only give Amazon access to a vast library of sports content but also position the company as a formidable competitor to traditional broadcasters in the live sports broadcasting arena.
Disney’s sport streaming goals
Disney’s ESPN may achieve a $24 billion valuation; potential suitors could involve Apple and Verizon.
In a recent financial report, Bank of America suggests that Disney’s ESPN could be on the verge of reaching a staggering $24 billion valuation. This eye-catching figure has sparked interest from potential buyers, with technology giants Apple and telecommunication leader Verizon being touted as likely contenders.
The valuation surge is attributed to ESPN’s successful digital transition, with streaming services, exclusive sports content, and expanding international markets contributing to its growth. Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox’s sports networks further boosted ESPN’s portfolio, making it an attractive asset for prospective buyers.
Apple, known for its foray into content creation with Apple TV+, could leverage ESPN’s sports content to expand its media empire. Meanwhile, Verizon, with its vast telecom infrastructure and distribution capabilities, could use ESPN to enhance its content offerings and engage a broader customer base.
This development marks a pivotal moment in ESPN’s history, and its future owner could redefine the landscape of sports broadcasting. As the valuation continues to climb, all eyes are on the potential suitors and the ensuing negotiations.
