The now fashionable answer is: "Only if you participate/compete in tournaments." It's a sad state of affairs, but it appears physical fitness/exertion is no longer a criterion for being an athlete. Any kind of activity that has a competitive element is now considered an athletic sport. Online team-based computer gaming has become a worldwide national competitive sport on ESPN.

If chubby professional bowlers and golfers can be considered "athletes," why not gamers?
