A National Sports

Cybergaming is going to be considered as a national sports in Singapore.  The CyberSports Association has been endorsed by Team Singapore to select, train and manage national representatives for international cybergaming tournaments.  Gamers selected to join Cyber Team Singapore will receive official recognition from Team Singapore, which oversees the national teams for sports, and wear national colours in competitions.

I wonder anyone who wins a medal for Singapore will get the same prize money as if they win from Commonwealth games, South-East Asian games or even the Olympics?  How about sponsorship for professional gamers?  If these all comes true, then gaming can really be a career for future Singaporean just like other sports.

This would also be good news for Singapore as Singaporean seem to be more able to excel in cybergaming rather than other sports.  It is an easy hobby to take up but would it be an easy one if it become a competition?

And would Cybergaming one day be included in the Olympics?
