°°°°The Olympic Council of Asia said last week that e-sports will be part of the competitive events at the 2022 Asian Games in Hangzhou, East China's Zhejiang province.

°°°°That news evoked immediate response from domestic e-sport players. Li Xiaofeng, who won the Warcraft III title at the 2005 and 2006 World Cyber Games and is now coaching new players, wrote in his micro blog: "The dream of a whole generation has finally come true." Many other players also welcomed the OCA decision.

°°°°The news, however, has intensified the worries of many parents. On the micro blog of Xinhua News Agency that released the news, a comment that won 108 "likes" reads: "Will that be a new excuse for children to play online games?"
