Those times of stressful presentations—yes, “comfort cup of coffee with milk”—and even more tense turnout are far behind. There are no longer big projects or bombastic budgets. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) meeting in Tokyo this Wednesday approved that Brisbane will be the venue for the 2032 Olympic Games in an act restricted by the pandemic and practically administrative.
