It's a virtual sport, perhaps not a physical sport. It requires just as much skill and mental focus. Gaming is incredibly competitive, just as much as any other sport. I guess it all just depends on what you want to make the definition of a sport. Does it have to involve physical movement?

The definition of a sport is as such: 1.
an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.
"team sports such as baseball and soccer"
synonyms:(competitive) game(s), physical recreation, physical activity, physical exercise, athletics; pastime
"we did a lot of sports"

"An activity involving physical excertion..."

Video games do meet the criteria of the last bit, but after the first statement, all is lost. Video games can be virtual reality of a sport, but video games is not a sport. You do not physically excerpt yourself in any way. The only movement you have to do while playing video games is that of your thumbs. And even then, it isn't much.

This is all I will say for now, as it is definitely a strong statement. I wish Pro the best of luck:)
