Olympic games 🙌

Hello friend 😉

So it has begun. The inauguration of the Olympic Games in Tokyo set off the competition between the players, athletes, and also the countries that fielded their representatives – and the race began. “Okay,” one might ask, “but how does this relate to video games and live streaming?” Well – very closely, it would seem! It’s enough to listen to the inaugural music to see how deeply the gaming world has been embedded in the culture of this event as well. What’s more, the world of sport and esports is intertwined. This is noticed by more people and policymakers who are seriously considering the move to include esports in the Olympics. However, this event also draws on the whole tradition of sport as a video game theme that is very rich and worth noting. In this issue of the newsletter, we will look at how the Olympics, sport and esports interweave. And this is a very interesting prospect!
