    My city will be hosting the 2032 summer Olympics.

    Yay!

    I plan to enjoy them.

    Another summer olympics in the winter! What's next: embracing the metric system or ... driving on the left side of the road!

    The world is going mad.

    Winter around Brisbane is great , it only gets cool in the pre dawn hours, when the sun is out it climbs to 20+ C fairly soon... the ocean temp rarely drops below 20C in winter...

    it's beach weather for a good part of it.... a lot of southeners and kiwis from the colder parts come up here for winter to warm up ...;)

    I think the athletes will love it... :)

    Tentatively set for July 23 -August 8

    Sydney 2000 was last two weeks in September

    Rio 2016 was middle of August

    You would not want an Olympics to be held in the middle of a Brisbane summer.

    Well, I don’t know what winter in Australia is like, but now that I think about it more, it just might be the mildest place on Earth to hold the Summer Olympics by 2032.:D

    Winter in Brisvegas = a balmy day anywhere in North America. Shorts, t-shirt but a little cooler at night so you need a hoodie.

    Queensland summers - perfect burnished blue skies, 40 deg one day, 125mph cyclone the next.... Or the rivers are flooding and bridges all down.

    Average Brisbane-ite, sinking XXXX stubbies. The rest of Australia reckons it's called XXXX coz you normally say 'xxxx' when tasting it. Also, Queensland is the Tennessee of Australia, and Banana-benders can't spell beer! :lol:

    Hmmm, that’s too bad. Probably a bit too toasty by 2032.

    Very few summers around the coast here get to 40... mostly it hovers around 30.... and cyclones haven't been coming this far south for decades...

    Bris is kinda in the goldilocks zone for warm climates..:)
