The Paris Olympic Games May host the first eSports Tournament

Twin Galaxies

Los Angeles city council rubber-stamped the host city contract today, paving the way for bringing the 2028 Summer Olympics to southern California and ceding the 2024 Games to Paris.

Should eSports become an Olympic event, youngsters around the world will have an ample return to their parents mandating they free themselves from their digital gaming devices.

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

Be prepared to watch the solar eclipse safely
There has been a lot of talk already leading up to the eclipse but here are some numbers about the eclipse you may not know. With the date quickly approaching, and many stores selling out, people are wondering where to buy eclipse safety glasses.

Estanguet also had some thoughts for esports sceptics out there: "We have to look at it because we can't say, 'It's not us". Let's look at it. Let's meet them.

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. Estanguet, however, has said that he hopes to get all sides to interact with each other and "try if we can find some bridges" between the two sides.

Estanguet, a three-time Olympic gold medal victor in canoe slalom, said the committee simply can't look the other way when it comes to eSports.

Guam posts 'in case of emergency' fact sheet after North Korea threat
It is about 2,200 miles (3,500 km) southeast of North Korea, much closer than it is to any of the United States. Supreme Court ruled same-sex marriage was legal throughout the U.S., including all its territories.

Paris will be confirmed as the host of the 2024 Olympics at the next meeting of the International Olympic Committee, which is the result of a deal with Los Angeles, which agreed to take the 2028 games instead.

The discussions on the sports that will be part of the Olympic Games 2024 will be launched in 2019, but nothing will be definitely decided before 2020, or after the Olympic Games in Tokyo. By 2022, it will become an official sport at the event, although it is unknown which games would be contested. "I think it's interesting to interact with the International Olympic Committee, with them, the esports family, to better understand what the process is and why it is such a success".

As for the fighting game community, it's probably best we be excited at the prospect, but not have any expectations for the time being.
