A look inside the Gillette Infinity Gaming house
This ongoing photo series examines the ways the coronavirus pandemic has upended and reshaped athletes' lives.
The players and staff who reside at the Gillette Infinity Esports house just outside Mexico City come from all over Latin America to compete in some of professional gaming's top League of Legends tournaments. Over the course of a season, players train and compete six days a week, leaving Mondays as a precious day off. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent suspension of other professional sports around the world, esports have continued and even expanded. Infinity's five League of Legends players and five support staff members are adjusting to life in quarantine while pursuing greater heights among the esports elite.
