At the age of 79, Abe Borg is known as the world’s oldest sports champion. But before hiring Lennovo to play in DreamHack 2017, he had never heard of a competitive game.
“I was on some ads in Sweden,” he told American Sunday. “This is how Lenovo met me. Their first question is if I want to play games – games will be sent. I said, “OK.” I look forward to it. If they will, I will do it. ‘
It was the game. Rebellious strike global disgust – First-person shooter attacks and defends five players in turn, continuously scores a goal or destroys five opposing players. The first team with 16 points wins.
Borg earned the nickname “DieHardBirdie” while training with his teammates. He has the unique ability to sound like a whistle-bird – his opponents often hear him aim.
Their team became known as the Silver Sniper, and although they did not win in 2017, they won the love of the fans and eventually won the DreamHack 2019 senior competition.
But Borg has not been idle since. A.D.
OGL.tv announced in June 2022 that the Golden Snipers will compete against The Matagi Snipers, Japan’s first all-senior team. “If Kovid’s situation does not change, there may be some questions about travel,” says Borg. But if all goes well, we will fly to Dallas. Like us! ”
Borg is proud to be the world’s leading sports champion, joining his first senior team with 14 members. He feels this competition is a way to legalize top sports and show the world that they are all young at heart – anything is possible. He wants to encourage and encourage the world to pay more attention to the elders and the games and to work to bridge the generation gap. “I think it’s possible,” he said. “I hope many seniors watch and try to play sports. We need to inspire them and ask them to find some gut to try and play with, to get some support from their families, their children and their grandchildren.
Borg believes that it is impossible to get out of the game and play like an old man without support. The older generation may be interested in games but are too shy to try them on their own. He says his grandchildren are his biggest inspiration and they love to watch. how They play. And thanks to the game, he was able to stay in touch with his family when he was separated from his family due to travel restrictions.
“So no one knows but I care about my health,” he said. “This game helps me. My fingers are moving very fast now. I used to have pain in my fingers, but this is not the case. The coordination between my hands and my eyes is very good. My reaction is faster than ever. I feel happy. It’s not a defeat, but this game has helped me. ”
But Borg is quick to point out that senior game. it is. Growing up. “Now there are top teams everywhere: Germany, Russia, Ukraine, Portugal, Sweden, Finland,” he said. “Growing up”
While adolescence has natural benefits in sports, Borg understands that age and experience play a role. “Trudy, Trudy, Trudy,” he repeats. “I can be careful and alert. I have to keep track of everything I do. There is no limit to my time. As a professional artist, he knows that craftsmanship is not fast, it is not a good game. He plays it carefully and deliberately. You have learned that patience.”
It would not be a surprise to Borg if children dreamed of becoming a professional player, streamer or sender. But it is very real. “If a child wants to be a player, you have to ask again in five years,” he said before announcing that full-time streaming is a lot of work. He saw some streams going for 10 -15 hours. “It’s too much,” he says. “If a kid tells a teacher he wants to be a professional player, that’s fine. But after a few years, ask them again.
Despite concerns over long game sessions, Borg is a guarantee that the game should not be unhealthy or negative. And he does not care if the video game promotes violence or harms people. “Games are mostly positive,” he says. “Some people talk about violence, but in real life there is more violence than the game. If one does not like violence, there are many. [other kinds of] Games.
“I can only answer for myself, but I feel good. I would like to. The people I play with are my enemies, not my enemies. The End Is the End ”
He has become a regular player since he first entered the world of sports and games. Through counter Strike, Borg has found a new way to acquire skills, overcome obstacles and connect with people. Now, he is eager to return to the race, but he is not upset.
“Maybe a week ago I would be shocked,” he laughs. For now, he is not thinking. He could not even train hard while waiting for the cataract to disappear. “I plan to start training in two weeks,” Borg continued. “Before, I could not see anything but the shadow. Everything was gray. I’m just thinking about being healthy. And I can play in two weeks.
In the meantime, he had plenty of time to think about the finals. “Communication is key,” he says. “There are five members in a group. Each member is thinking differently. But we must work together like five fingers to be like a fist.
According to Borg, watching him play counter Strike It has become a great way to correct mistakes. “I’m watching. I prefer to play. But I watch?” “I watch my games too. I can see what mistakes I am making. You know, I’ve been killed many times, I have to look at what I lost. It is very important to play with someone who is better. This will give you a chance to get better.
While he is already throwing ice-cold wisdom, Borg offers some extra tips for anyone who wants to play counter Strike For the first time. “Just calm down,” he said. “see you. You are playing. Have fun… That’s it, I do it without worry. “Sometimes I do stupid things and I get killed and I say, ‘Oh my gosh.’
Thanks to the game, Borg believes that the narrative of the generation gap is changing and hopes that more people will continue to change when they choose games and participate in a healthy and positive way.
