Hello, I'd like to debate the topic that the game of chess is not a sport. It has been put out by the Olympic Committee that Chess is now officially considered a sport. I personally believe that this is incorrect. Hoping for a fun debate

In my opinion chess IS a sport, it is a competition against one person, sport is often a competition against another team, this is quite similar. Okay chess is played sitting down and sports are played standing up, but this is a mental game not a physical game. It has similarities to sports and differences.

As you have forfeited round 2 of this debate, I assume that you now agree that chess IS a sport, and you now know why it has been considered a sport in the olympics. If you wish to prove otherwise, please present an argument in the following round.
