XTEN, the Latin American League of Legends team with Olympic roots | Sports | America Edition

XTEN Esports, a team in the Latin American League of Legends (LLA), has its roots in Olympic sport because the owner of the team, Ha Neul Lee, was inspired by his father, Woong Lee, coach of the Mexican shooting team. with bow that participated in London 2012, to apply the discipline of traditional sport to eSports.

“Since I was a kid, when I accompanied him to the Olympic Games to archery competitions, I was interested in sports and the discipline that is in them, that’s what we try to do in eSports with XTEN”, said Ha Neul Lee to Eph.

Woong was part of the coaching team that helped Mexico in 2012 to get the silver medal from Aida Román and the bronze from Mariana Avitia, the first for the country that sport in the Olympic Games.

At XTEN, the players follow the discipline of traditional sports through sports psychologists (at this time they have Susana Bolio, who has trained high-performance Mexican athletes), and they are accompanied by a multidisciplinary plan.

“We take care of the players from how they get up, it is not just arriving and turning on the computer, it is how they eat breakfast, what they eat for breakfast and what they do after breakfast. The team talks, the mentality that they lead to their day to day,” he explained Read.

Woong was the first owner of XTEN, but he handed over the management to his son Ha Neul Lee for him to pursue other projects.

XTEN, antes de iniciar con su rutina de entrenamiento diario, hace estiramientos en sus muñecas, brazos y en la postura que deben tomar enfrente del computador, además de que cuentan con una gaming house y gaming office, lo que los obliga a estar en movimiento.

“Tenemos la casa separada de la oficina (donde practican). Nuestros jugadores se mueven para ir a comer y descansar. Procuramos que no estén sentados todo el día”, comentó el argentino Minibestia (Jesús Coll), manager de XTEN.

El equipo con raíces olímpicas ha estado en la LLA desde el inicio, participando en los dos playoffs disputados hasta el momento. En el Apertura 2019 jugó cuartos de final y en el Clausura 2019 llegó hasta semifinales.

Con esta bagaje, el staff deportivo de XTEN buscó una plantilla para el Apertura 2020 de la LLA que tuviera experiencia y ‘rookies’.

XTEN contrató al coreano Frozen (Kim Tae-il) para ser el líder de la escuadra desde la posición de ‘mid laner’.

Frozen cuenta con participación mundialista en 2017, año en el que también formó parte del Juego de Estrellas. En 2019 perteneció a la escuadra de Turquía, Papara SuperMassive.

El argentino Unforgiven (Maximiliano Utrero), quien se integrará a partir de este fin de semana a la LLA, es otra de las cartas fuertes del roster de XTEN.

Utrero, con la posición de jungla, perteneció en los primeros dos torneos a All Knights, equipo con el que finalizó subcampeón el torneo pasado.

“Es un plus contar con un staff coreano porque ellos traen su cultura a los eSports de México. En Latinoamérica somos bastante vagos, nos cuesta un poco dar el extra, y los coreanos son los referentes en ese sentido”, agregó Minibestia.

The organization based in Mexico has a new objective in 2020, to become a multidisciplinary organization, and for this it will seek to be one of the teams that participate in the first face-to-face Mexican Rainbow Six: Siege Championship that will be based in Mexico City.

“At XTEN we always have the idea of ​​being in the best competitive tournaments in the region. Rainbow Six is ​​going to open the doors to the ‘shooter’ (video game) genre, where there is a passionate audience that continues to grow,” said the manager of the team.
