Special Envoy for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games

  • Written by Scott Morrison

I am pleased to announce that Mr Ted O’Brien MP, Member for Fairfax, has accepted the role of Special Envoy for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, commencing immediately.

Hosting the Games is a remarkable opportunity for both Queensland and Australia to lock in economic and social benefits for years to come.

Mr O’Brien played an integral role in securing the rights for Brisbane to host the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games as my personal representative for Brisbane’s candidature. This role will see Mr O’Brien engaging with businesses and the community to ensure the Commonwealth retains an ongoing dialogue with, and understanding of, the key interests of the Queensland community.

He will report directly to me and also work closely with the Minister for Sport, Richard Colbeck, and the Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, Paul Fletcher, to help deliver on the Commonwealth’s partnership with the Queensland Government and other Games partners to make Brisbane 2032 a world-class Games with a lasting legacy.

I congratulate Mr O’Brien and look forward to continuing to work with him.
