eSports being considered for inclusion in the olympics

Not that I have ever been much of a gamer, but I think I'll flag this up today. So called eSports are being considered for inclusion in the olympics, possibly at Paris 2024. Of course, the debate rages about whether playing computer games qualifies as sport: on the one hand, it doesn't require much physical activity or training; on the other hand, the field has become far more intensive and serious in recent times. Competitive gaming is serious business; as I wrote here, as an art form it is starting to come alongside others in terms of how political it is. It is no longer seen as just something kids do in their bedrooms, or as a way to fill time when one should be doing something more productive - that's a change in status which I find quite interesting.
