The world is still celebrating what has universally been considered a very positive London 2012 Summer Games. With the closing ceremonies leaving a last impression on a global audience, the focus has shifted to Rio 2016. Those Olympic Games won’t feature American swimmer Michael Phelps, who will likely remain the most decorated Olympic athlete of all time for quite some time.
While Phelps has said he’s retired from swimming, could he return one day as a professional gamer? Well, probably not. While the athlete has said he enjoys playing Call of Duty for as many as 30 hours a week, he also said he gets his butt kicked by gamers online. But eSports could become an Olympic Sport as early as the 2020 Summer Games.
