Who says that gaming won’t get you anywhere in life? Heck, some video gamers are making several hundred thousand a year from prize money and endorsements. It’s no surprise that video gaming would come to be recognized as a professional sport, at least as far as League of Legends is concerned. More will surely follow.
Now one League of Legends player, Danny “Shiphtur” Le, has been granted a US visa so that he will be allowed to come into the US ahead of the world championships to train for it. This makes him the first pro gamer to receive a US visa that recognizes him as an international athlete! Big game news!
Other gamers get vistas, but not like this. Le is the first who will be able to make a salary during his stay in the US. Awesome. He will be getting paid to do what he loves.
