Wednesday 21st July
A group of friends and I decided to be present at Southbank for the announcement from Tokyo, of the 2023 Olympic Games host city. Sitting in the parkland near Southbank's big screen from 4 pm, we watched the excitement mount, even though it was almost a given, that Brisbane would win. The backdrop of the Brisbane River and the city was perfect for the celebrations that followed when Brisbane won.
We have a wonderful and friendly city, I can only hope that these games will build on that. Sydney excelled in 2000. I'm sure Brisbane can do the same and better. Much of the infrastructure is already in place.
Congratulations Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
I would love to read your comment.
