Esports at the Olympics?

Esports has been recently featured at the ongoing Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, albeit to a mixed reaction.

Alongside the IOC's recognition as a sport, do you think that Esports should be featured at the next Olympic games?

Before I read the press release you linked I wouldn’t have thought that esports could be an Olympic sport. Now I’m not as sure. I wonder what the definition of sport is in regards to olympics.

Hm, I dunno! It sounds a bit weird. To me olympic games are usually physically demanding, right? It seems that it needs to be distinguished in some way.
