DTNS 3360 – E-olympics: Battle of the Thumbs

The president of the International Olympic Committee has told the AP “We cannot have in the Olympic program a game which is promoting violence or discrimination… They, from our point of view, are contradictory to the Olympic values and cannot therefore be accepted.” Meanwhile eSports tournaments will be held at the 2018 Asian Games. Can eSports find legitimacy among traditional sporting competitions?

Starring Tom Merritt, Jenn Cutter and Roger Chang.
