Esports at the olympics in 2024 ?

He believes that contest of digital prowess should be considered an Olympic sport if the event wants to maintain its popularity and stay relevant for current and future generations of fans. Regardless, the Paris 2024 Olympics is still years from now so there's plenty of time for the International Olympic Committee to determine if eSports truly has a place in the world's most prestigious sporting event.

Introducing eSports would nearly certainly help make the Olympics more relevant to younger generations-a tick in Estanguet's pro column.

"We are the only city that has two successful Olympics - that's what I look to", Councilman Gil Cedillo said, referring to previous L.A. Games in 1984 and 1932.

Tony Estanguet, co-president of the Paris bid committee says he will speak with both the IOC and eSports representatives about adding competitive video gaming as a medal sport. Los Angeles recently struck a deal with the International Olympic Committee to take the 2028 Olympics in exchange for allowing Paris to host four years earlier.

The youth's massive interest in eSports could be a huge draw for the Olympics, which is something that Estanguet sees as a good opportunity to invest in.

"Look, there's 11 years before the Games, so it wouldn't hurt if they took a year or even six months instead of rushing", said Jed Parriott, an organizer of the NOlympics LA group. The Rio games already showcased eSports competitions as exhibition matches and Asia's Olympic Council has already included medal events for eSports in the 2022 Asian Games. "Let's try if we can find some bridges".

Final decisions on additions to the Paris games won't be made until 2020 leaving plenty of time for argument. "I think it's interesting ... to better understand what the process is why it is such a success". It seems like the gap between eSports, video games and the Olympics is starting to close in.
