- ‘You are going,’ Queensland premier told in press conference
- Awkward exchange comes after Brisbane confirmed as 2032 host
Australian Olympic Committee president John Coates has insisted that Queensland premier Annastacia Palaszczuk attend the Tokyo 2020 opening ceremony, in an awkward exchange just hours after Queensland won the hosting rights for the 2032 Games.
Palaszczuk had previously said she would not attend the ceremony, in the face of growing domestic concern about her international trip.
