The craft of sport

In celebrating the extra $10million that will to a National Sport Museum, the Minister for Arts & Sport George Brandis describes the particular nature of the exhibits.
The museum will feature memorabilia and a series of high-tech interactive installations that are heavily focused on the "experience" of sport. They include: a simulator to replicate the "feeling and emotion felt by sports people when performing their craft"; a multi-media optical display that lets visitors feel the "living" presence of sports players; and a 180 degree theatre for viewing sport.
'Craft' in this case seems to regard the skills intrinsic to sporting performance that are not immediately apparent in the score cards.
