Video Games as an Olympic Sport?
Back in August, there was a push to have e-Sports, video games, become a part of the Olympics. In fact, the International e-Sports Federation (IeSF) took the first steps to making e-Sports a recognized sport by the International Olympic Committee. The idea of watching someone sit in front of a computer/TV violently slamming the keys of their controller may not seem appealing…But this sport could resonate with many millennials and increase the Olympic viewing rate among the group. Remember it often comes down to $$$ with the Olympics. Younger viewers means more potential cash. Los Angeles, one of the cities bidding for the 2024 Olympic Games, is highlighting that e-Sports could be the future for modernizing the games. People once thought it was crazy that snowboarding would be an Olympic sport. (Source: Mashable, Mashable)
