Things are changing in the world of traditional sports, it’s colliding with the technological world and evolving what we view as traditional sports. According to The Guardian eSports are currently being considered for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. Who would have thought that technology would breach such a classic organization based on history and tradition? It goes to show what people are interested in playing and watching.
Olympic viewership saw its first decrease in over a decade during the Rio Games and the committee wants to find ways to get people interested again. To engage the younger generation, eSports is one of the solutions. If eSports makes it into the running of the Olympics, it means that online gaming is now seen as an official sport, one that can qualify you to win a gold medal.
