The Queensland Premier had previously insisted she was going to watch the ceremony on television from her hotel room

Coates was out of line saying what he did to the premier at a press conference. The ironic thing is neither of them are likely to be in any position of power in 2032. Coates is 71, so he will be 82 and unlikely to be in the IOC, and Palaszczuk will not be premier in 2032.

By the way, the temperature today in Brisbane was about 4 degrees in the morning. Holding the summer Olympics in winter (starting July 23, 2032) is sure going to be interesting.
