Ólafur Snorri statement
Success in every sport is build on mental and physical health. Physical health is crucial to keep focus during long sessions and to minimize injuries. Esports are not different from other sports in these matters, even though it is not talked about as much. Behind every pro team are multiple coaches focusing on physical health, nutrition, sleep and more. These are the aspects that players train better and reach further in their sport. I’m happy to be part of a team that is changing the discussion in a positive way and treating competitive gaming as the sport it deserves.
