This is the text (if you need help).

A designer of the World of Warcraft game has said video games should be in the Olympics. Rob Pardo told the BBC that video games (also called e-sports) should be an Olympics event. It would make the Olympics more modern. Millions of people love playing and watching competitive gaming. Mr Pardo said professional gamers need to be "lightning quick". They have to make hundreds of sudden decisions in one game.

It is difficult to get e-sports into the Olympics. People do not think it is a real sport because it uses technology. Pardo says it is a sport because it needs physical effort and skill. He thinks it is better than many Olympic sports. PC Magazine said there could be an international competition just for e-sports. This could be like the Olympics. It means gaming would be the main event. In the Olympics, gaming would be one of many sports.

Back to the e-sports lesson.
