We Could See Video Games as Part of the 2024 Summer Olympics

Macron announced in May that he would travel to Lima to help Paris secure the 2024 Olympic Games.

The 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris could feature video game competitions.

The younger generation of people out there are finding little that appeals to them during the Olympics, but that may be changing.

The Paris bid team will be talking to eSports and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) about the possibility of gaming joining the 2024 program.

eSports has become very popular in the past several years, with events selling out venues as large as Madison Square Garden. Now that the order of the 2024 and 2028 Olympics has been all but decided, Macron's travels are no longer necessary reports Le Parisien. Blizzard and Twitch have an exclusive deal in place for game streaming and competitive gaming continues to grow thanks to legions of fans and significant money up for winning tournaments.

He told The Associated Press: "We have to look at it because we can't say, 'It's not us".

Reports on the possible admission of the Russian national team to the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, in exchange for a $100 million fine is speculation, International Olympic Committee said in a statement. To this end, the three-time former Olympic champion in canoe-slalom, went on to state, "The youth, yes they are interested in e-sports and this kind of thing [gaming]".

"Let's look at it. Let's meet them". The process of bringing the 2024 Olympics together will begin in 2019, though we'll have to wait until after the Tokyo 2020 games to find out whether any new events are being added for Paris.

"I don't want to say "no" from the beginning", he continued.

Estanguet added: "There is some time to look at it, to interact, to engage. Let's discuss among ourselves".

"I have to admit over the last years it was not easy to carry a bid", Estanguet said, "especially because in Europe you saw what happened to other bid cities". But Paris still needs to build an aquatics center close to the Stade de France, a media center and the Olympic Village. "This is my mandate now".
