Mexico has expressed interest in serving as the Olympic host country in 2036 or 2040. During a conference in Switzerland, the nation’s Olympic Committee delivered a letter explaining its goals to Thomas Bach, the head of the International Olympic Committee. Both the President of the Mexican Olympic Committee, Mary José Alcalá, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Marcelo Ebrard, attended the conference.

The proposal was prompted, according to Ebrard, by Mexican society’s contemporary values and a desire to advance sports participation at a greater level. He expressed the same to Bach. The Olympic Games planning, according to Alcalá, would be a crucial step towards achieving their objective. In addition to thanking Mexico for its enthusiasm for hosting the Games, Bach provided advice and support for their bid.

Mexico and its interest to host the Summer Olympics

The Summer Olympics were previously held in Mexico in 1968, and the country has competed in every Summer Olympics since 1924, taking home 13 gold, 24 silver, and 36 bronze medals. The announcement comes as Mexico celebrates 100 years of the Olympic Movement, with a commemorative ceremony conducted in January at the offices of the Mexican Olympic Committee in Mexico City to recognize the occasion.

Mexico would join a limited group of countries that have repeatedly hosted the Olympic Games if its candidature is accepted. The host country for the 2032 Summer Olympics will be announced by the International Olympic Committee later this year. Brisbane, Australia, is largely anticipated to be chosen as the host city.
