A group of gamers have started an online petition to try to get eSports recognised as an Olympic sport.
Torch for Gaming believes eSports fully embody the Olympic spirit, arguing they are accessible to people who are excluded from traditional sports because of physical disability.
"By their design, video games provide joy and education," the group argues on its website. "They entertain and they teach. Games create ethical boundaries and challenge our views, they force us to govern and to abide. No other sport can claim such a combination of body, will and mind."
The Torch for Gaming petition currently has 1,525 signatures from 24 countries. The group is encouraging people to sign by arguing that video games promote friendship, create communities around shared experiences, and do not discriminate on gender or age.
