India hopes to host 3 sports events, including 2032 Olympics

India to bid for 2026 Youth Olympics 2032 Summer Olympics says IOA chief Narinder Batra

As reported earlier by Mail Today, Batra said India would bid for the 2026 Youth Olympics, the 2030 Asian Games and the 2032 Olympics.

Batra assured that the IOA would also strike a gender balance.

On the subject of hosting the Olympics, Thomas Bach said that the reformed procedures and norms, presented as Olympic Agenda 2020, had made the organisation of Games "more feasible and sustainable", and would help the potential countries interested in organising the Games, save about "one billion American dollars".

"We will seriously bid for these events with the full support of the Government". We don't know whether they will come to India or not. We will present bids for hosting the 2026 Youth Olympic Games, the 2030 Asian Games and the 2036 Olympic Games. "Only after we finalise 2022 Youth Olympics hosts, we will start the procedure for 2026", said Bach. "So, it will not be appropriate to say anything right now", the German said, adding that seven cities/national Olympic committees, have already expressed interest in hosting the 2032 edition. Tokyo will host the 2020 Olympics with the next two editions to be staged in Paris and Los Angeles.

"The bottom line for doing anything, taking such decisions (like hosting big-ticket events), needs to be what good is that tournament going to be for our country?"

It is not clear whether Batra has taken the sports ministry into confidence before making the announcement.

As for India's bid to host the 2032 Olympics, Bach said, "There is a lot of time left till we open the bidding procedure for the 2032 Olympics".

"IOC is completely different than CGF and Olympics are different than Commonwealth Games". Thailand is said to be one of the contenders.

"Congrats to the IOA and the athletes for winning 66 medals at the Games". It would be fantastic for Indian athletes to have their Olympics at their home country. This is Bach's second visit to India and he showered lavish praises on the hospitality extended to him. He offered assistance in training Indian medal hopefuls for the Tokyo Olympics.

IOA president Narinder Batra said as a fall-out from the Gold Coast CWG, he had told the sports ministry the "no needle policy" must be applicable to all national camps in India. Bach said India could build from here on and do well in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

"Of course, the IOC wants the Olympic Games to stay relevant to young audiences and include sport that can be held in centres of the host city in the midst of people, not just in stadia", he said. According to a government release, Bach expressed happiness that the Indian government had categorical views on "clean sports".

Appreciating the expression of good governance as a priority by the IOA, under the "dynamic leadership of Narinder Batra", and the sports ministry recognising "the autonomy of sport", Bach pointed out that the UN General Assembly had also recognised the autonomy of sport.
