While professional gamers might have the reactions of a fighter (or drone) pilot, a study of several “elite cyber-sportsmen” indicated that their physical condition was well below par.

The University of Essex’s Dr. Dominic Micklewright conducted the tests and reported that the pro gamers did have “mental sharpness and psychological traits comparable to 'real' athletes,” [URL=http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/video-games/7808860/Computer-gamers-have-reactions-of-pilots-but-bodies-of-chain-smokers.html]writes the Telegraph[/URL] (thanks [URL=http://www.hotbloodedgaming.com/2010/06/08/professional-gamers-are-out-of-shape/]HotBloodedGaming[/URL]), but physical conditioning was another story. One 20-something gamer appeared slim, but was reported to have “the lung function and aerobic fitness of a heavy smoker in his sixties.”

Dr. Micklewright said about the young man, “Someone of this age should be much fitter, but perhaps this is the occupational hazard of the professional gamer who can spend around 10 hours a day in front of a screen.”
