Esports will not be at the Olympics / Jim Parry

Parry, Jim

Over the past three or four years, there has been much discussion and negotiation over the place of esports—both as sports, and as acceptable sports—on the Olympic program. In this short time, many actors have shifted position, and the terminology (what, exactly, count as esports?) has become confused. In this article, Parry sets out the debates as they relate to the Olympic Games, chart the terminological terrain, and suggest some proposals for the International Olympic Committee to consider as they develop their own policies on the topic.
