Indonesia to bid for 2036 Olympics after 2032 failure

Indonesia will bid to host the 2036 Summer Olympics after failing to secure the 2032 games, the country's National Olympic Committee said in a statement on Thursday.

Committee chief Raja Sapta Oktohari said, "We will not back down and will continue to fight for the 2036 Olympics," promising more solid preparation.

On Wednesday, during the annual session of the International Olympic Committee, members confirmed Brisbane as host of the Summer Olympics in 2032, after the IOC's future host commission held a "targeted dialogue" with the city.

Oktohari said Indonesia aims to be chosen for the IOC targeted dialogue for the 2036 bid.

Indonesia has campaigned to host the Summer Games after successfully holding the Asian Games in 2018.
