The Times is reporting that President of Olympics Committee Jacques Rogge has said that in comparison to sport, there is no achievement in gaming.

“Kids are attracted to visual, interactive forms of communication,” he said. “It’s not going to be easy for sport to counter that.

“You won’t hear me saying sport is not fun – it is,” he went on. “But it requires austerity and discipline. The answer is achievement. You will never achieve in a video game. It is not really success.”

So there you go, you losers.
