Lightsaber Dueling is an Officially Recognized Sport...in France!

We are living our best lives right now because lightsaber dueling has officially been recognized as a sport in France which makes us one step closer to it becoming an Olympic sport!

Yes the popular Star Wars weapon of choice for a more civilized time is getting recognized by the French Fencing Federation as a weapon of choice for any competition in the country.

Apparently the decision was made to try and get the attention of young people who, for the most part, are playing Fortnite.

The best part is that in order for a competitor to win a match they have to accurately have swooshing blows against their opponent.

 

Hopefully this means the US will follow suite soon too so that we can have enough reason to justify buying the expensive version of lightsabers!!
