Sky News host Peter Gleeson has called on the Palaszczuk government to “secure” the 2032 Olympic Games, saying it’s an “extraordinary opportunity” the nation cannot miss.
In late 2019, the Queensland government formally announced its bid for the 2032 Olympics after a feasibility study found the state was capable of hosting the event.
The move was met with harsh criticism from One Nation Senator Pauline Hanson, who claimed the state “can’t afford” the games, and that the money should be used elsewhere.
Mr Gleeson said the International Olympic Committee “loves what Australia brings to the table” and that the chance to host another international event would “stimulate tourism”.
“Believe me this is an extraordinary opportunity for Australia to once again play ‘A grade’ on the international stage,” he said.
“Let’s secure the Games and revel in the opportunity for Australia to shine again”.
