although it originally grew out of hunting aerial game ...

If you think of a game/sport as "solving a problem within rule
constraints" - I think it would be quite possible for a particular game
to be an elegantly done and executed solution to a problem.

A musician is also "solving a problem within rule constraints" (if
nothing more than the musician's determination to express themselves
using music vs carving a marble sculture).

So an elegantly done and executed game/sport contest could be just as
much a work of art as a specific musical composition.

See what happens when you turn monkeys loose on the Internet? ;-)
