Chess in the Olympics: Should Chess be an event in the Summer Olympics?

  • Chess is a sport!!!

    Chess player in the morning to all my life and the rest of the day before I get a follow back on my way mind that is not an issue with my life and the rest is the only thing that could make the most hi chessboard I don't think it's not a sport

  • Chess should be an Olympic sport, like Boxing both opponents are equally matched. The outcome could be decided, by tactics or mistakes

    Boxing requires body strength, concentration and understanding your opponents strengths and weaknesses.
    To concentrate on your opponents tactics, as well as your own.
    Boxing as a opening either attack and defence. A middle area to prepare for the final knock out.
    Never feel you have won or lost a match, one mistake could change the total outcome of the match!

    Chess requires mental strength, concentration and understanding your opponents strengths and weaknesses.
    To concentrate on your opponents tactics, as well as your own.

    Never feel you have won or lost a match, one mistake could change the total outcome of the match!

  • Chess is a sport

    Actually, according to the dictionary, chess is a sport. Did you also know that chess can help you lose weight, due to the intense competitiveness of the game? Also, it is played on almost all continents, and is widely supported. By having chess in the summer olympics, more support could be given too.

  • Chess is indeed a sport

    How does the dictionary define "sport"? Merriam Webster, a reliable source, defines it as " to play in a happy and lively way". Chess fits both requirements. Also, the National Olympic Committee considers it a sport. Besides, it was closer to getting into the olympics than football is ever going to be. If football is a sport, chess is. Chess has competition between two players/teams. Did you also know that chess is the most popular sport in the world?

  • Chess is not a physical sport.

    Chess is a sport but it is not a physical sport, it is a mind sport. Those kinds of sports need their own Olympic games. Chess, checkers, Tetris and others would be perfect for that. Putting chess in the regular Olympics would take away from the true meaning of the Olympics.

  • No, chess should not be a sport at all.

    The definition of sport is very loose, and it needs to include things that take physical prowess to complete. Chess should not be considered a sport, but even if it were included in the Olympics as a sport it should be included in the winter games, not the summer ones.

  • Boring to watch

    Should never even have a look in like cricket two of the most boring sports to watch but if cricket go in for the next Olympics only t20 short and quick and take golf out as well fun to play boring to watch not a sport it is a hobby

  • Chess isn't a sport

    When athletes walk into the stadium at the Opening Ceremony, people can only imagine what they went through to get there. Their struggles, both mentally and physically, are not going to be experienced by the average person. But to have these chess players stand equal to these swimmers and volleyball players? It's ridiculous. Chess is in a completely different category compared to an average sport. People need reflexes, physical strength, mental strength, and endurance for an average Olympic sport, such as basketball, tennis, water polo, or hockey. Meanwhile, chess has little to none of these attributes. Chess players already participate in many completions, but the Olympics shouldn't be one.
