this is a really interesting question here Hadyn
can art be like sport too? the set pieces, the rules, the structures of play, yes they do have elements of creativity and spirit about them that liken them to art, however bound by the same over-riding goal: a result and the test of human spirit.
in a sense sport is like a mix of maths and creativity. a science and an art maybe?
in a lot of ways art already is like a sport: painting uses its own gear, conventions, motifs. the commentary assumes a level of knowledge and understanding of its audience, and yes the test of the human spirit.
