Two CS:GO players were featured in Forbes ‘30 Under 30 Sport & Games’ list which consists of a good mix of great athletes and personalities. The first player to feature is the Counter-Strike legend Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer Gustafsson followed by the Danish superstar Nicolai “dev1ce” Reedtz.

Olofmeister is one of the Counter-Strike greats who is equally proficient with a rifle and an AWP, the 28-year-old has been playing professionally since the past 10 years during which he served Fnatic for more than 3 years, in his time with the organization he won two CS:GO majors while also claiming the title of ‘The Best Player of 2015’.

Currently playing for FaZe Clan, with whom the Swede has been playing since August 2017, Olof might not be at the top of his game but still remains to be a significant player whose name will definitely go down in the hall of fame.

Dev1ce, on the other hand, is in his prime form or rather has been in his prime form for a long time now finishing as a top-five player in the world, 5 years in a row. The Dane has been a part of Astralis since 2016 during which he has won four CS:GO majors with the team.

With 15 MVP titles under his belt, which is the most by any player in the history of the game, dev1ce is truly the most consistent player by the virtue of performance to have ever played the game.

The two players rightly deserved to be on the list which was judged by a panel of professionals including two time Dota 2 TI Champion Johan “N0tail” Sundstein and Founder of G2 Esports Carlos “ocelote” Rodriguez.

Having accomplished some truly impressive feats in their respective careers, the two CS:GO players were joined by some other esport athletes like Rainbow Six Siege player Niclas “Pengu” Mouritzen and League of Legends player Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski, both of whom play for the Spanish esports organization G2 Esports.
