It's great these kids can make a good living with their hobby but stop calling them athletes. If anything they're going to be in real big physical trouble from the lack of physical fitness. It may be a competition but it's not a sport.

I remember reading a while back the workout routine for one of the top StarCraft players: a daily 4 mile run, and calesthenics 3x per week. Don't know if that's common, but pro gamers need a lot more physical accuity than say chess players.

Still not athletes......
