This chess champion (Garry Kasparov) claims he is one of Russia’s most decorated athletes. I’m not sure I would put him in the athlete category, although I’m unsure where to slot him? It’s almost like we need a separate category for games masters.

I would probably say pool is also in the games category… and has more ‘players’ than ‘athletes’

What are some other sports, that may not be sports… or athletes, that may not be athletes? What about hunting? fishing? esports? I mean it’s in the name?
