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.
