Seeking permission to bid for 2032 Olympics: IOA President

Indian Olympic Association (IOA) president N Ramachandran said that the association was seeking permission from the government to bid for the 2032 Olympics.

Also, the IOC is keen on bidding for the 2030 Asian Games to put the country on the map of international sports community.

Meanwhile, there aren't many cities eager on hosting, owing to the costs involved.

Background

Sports Ministry in two minds on hosting 2032 Olympics

While the Sports Ministry is open to the idea of partaking in the bidding process but it will move cautiously in view of the costs involved.

The bidding and candidature process begins nine years before the event. This means that the International Olympic Committee will be announcing the 2032 hosts in 2025.

This gives the government a few more years to plan.

The countries which have declared their interest in the 2032 Olympics are Germany, Australia, and India.

All these countries have eight years to build their cases in front of IOC.

Of the three, Germany's bid is interesting, as it has proposed to spread the Olympic events throughout 13 different cities in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

Analysis

Can India afford it? This is the question which comes to haunt one when India is bidding for the 2032 Olympics.

However, on the contrary, India's successful stint at several global cricket tournaments puts a stop to such speculations.

According to IOC president Ramachandran, the aim is to use the engagement as a catalyst for the growth of Olympic sports in India.
