I'll be the first to argue video gaming as a sport, but I don't think e-sports really fit in with the Olympics as the rest of the events are physical strength or endurance activities (though static shooting events & dressage I would also argue don't fit, while Curling at the winter Olympics is borderline IMO)

Ultimately I understand you cant keep everything strictly categorised (game-sports vs athletic events) as there will always be those borderline events wherever you draw the line, but if video-games are included, why isnt motorsport, or what about other game-sports like snooker or darts, or even chess.
