JEDDAH —
Princess Reema Bint Bandar, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States, has been appointed as a member of the International Olympic Committee Coordination Commission for Brisbane 2032.

The Zimbabwean swimmer Kirsty Coventry has been appointed to chair the Committee for Brisbane 2032.

Twelve IOC members have been named to the Coordination Commission, eight of them women.

Princess Reema was elected a member of the International Olympic Committee in July 2020.

Brisbane was confirmed as the 2032 Games host at the IOC Session in Tokyo on July 21.

It was the sole candidate presented to the Session, having already been approved by the IOC Executive Board.

It is the first time that Olympic hosting rights have been awarded under the new system, whereby a traditional bid race has been replaced by the IOC Future Host Commission identifying and proposing hosts to the Executive Board.
