A gaming tournament that is aiming to be the "Olympics of e-sports" was showcased at the Rio Games on Monday, with participants able to win medals instead of prize money.
E-sports refers to competitive gaming where teams or individual gamers play each other while other people watch in stadiums or online.
The International eGames Group, a company backed by the U.K. government, is hosting the games which will debut in Pyeongchang, South Korea in 2018, where the Winter Olympics takes place.
It will be a medals-only competition with players having the chance to take home gold for their country. Each country will have a national squad playing in teams or as individuals for different games. National qualifiers will be held in different countries in 2017 with the finalists meeting in South Korea for the inaugural eGames tournament.
