Indonesia has submitted a proposal to host the 2032 Olympics to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) after successfully holding the Asian Games last year, a statement from the Indonesian Embassy in Switzerland said on Tuesday.
That might lead Indonesia to compete with India and joint efforts by the South and North Korea to win the opportunity.
Indonesian President Joko Widodo's letter, stipulating Indonesia's plan to host the world's biggest sport event, was sent to President of the IOC Thomas Bach last week, according the statement.
The selection of the 2032 Olympics host is scheduled to be made no longer than 2024.
What's next for Olympics?
The International Olympic Committee confirmed earlier after the end of previous olympics month that there will be five new sports at the 2020 Tokyo summer Games.
Baseball, climbing, karate, skateboarding and surfing will join the list of 39 existing sports in Tokyo, though there is still no place for netball, squash or snooker.
Neither bridge nor chess has been accepted as part of the Olympic pantheon of sports for 2020.
It would be interesting to see what all changes are made for the further editions.
