Russia has extended help to India in hosting the 2036 Olympics if the bid receives backing from the International Olympic Committee (IOC). India has continuously shown interest to host the 2036 Games with Ahmedabad as the main city.
The country has offered to extend a helping hand to India for hosting the prestigious quadrennial event.
India had already made proposals to host the Olympics in 2024 and 2032 but failed in the opportunity.
The hosts for the next three Olympics –
- Paris in 2024
- Los Angeles in 2028
- Brisbane in 2032
Russia’s Sports Minister Oleg Matytsin mentioned “specialists will be happy to help in organizing the Olympic Games in India”.
Narinder Batra, president of the India Olympic Association (IOA), offered a multi-city bid for the events to be held in Ahmedabad. Gujarat’s advocate general informed the court, that the preparations for the Olympic 2036 bid are going on. The Olympic committee will visit the country for its assessment in the year 2025.
The ongoing war in Ukraine made other nations and sporting federations shun Russia from sporting events.
Oleg Matytsin, Sports Minister of Russia, led the nation’s legation to the convention against doping in sports, taking place in New Delhi. He mentioned, that Russia help India’s bid for Olympic 2036 and the specialists from Russia are happy to aid with the organization of the world’s biggest sporting meet.
The Russian minister of sports discussed possible areas of cooperation and exchange of expertise with Mr. Anurag Thakur, the minister of sports and youth affairs.
