Esports Is Still Not Being Accepted As Official Event In Olympic 2024

in #sportstalk2 years ago

According to the latest announcement from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) yesterday - there were supposed to add these 4 sports: break dance, skateboarding, rock climbing and surfing into the competition events.

However, after a final decision - the IOC decided to drop all these 4 sports from Olympic 2024, which is going to be held at Paris, France!

Alongside with those 4 sports, esports was one of the few that being considered to be added into the Olympic 2024 (unfortunately, the game itself is too new and not being accepted as one of the official Olmypic's games)

France is one of the countries in the world famous for the production of Parkour - many of the Parkour aka freerunners also very familiar with break dance.

In this case, the IOC might be giving another chance to accept break dance into the newest Olympic's event.

For those of you that didn't know what break dance is - this video might help you understand its concept :)

Until then, cya folks!


I am definitely an avid watcher of esports, specifically smash and MTG: Arena, but I really don't think esports should be in the olympics. Esports and sports are barely comparable past the superficial comparison that they are competitions played by people a train at a preexisting game. However, compared to actual athletes, the amount of dedication put into esports is honestly kind of disrespectful in comparison. Olympic athletes usually spend their entire lives training their craft, while the games that are featured in esports are only a few years old.

I'm agree with your here, because I'm also a MTG:Arena fan as well.
Thanks for giving out your thoughtful opinions 😀
