Is archery a crossbow?

Archery can be done with a crossbow. I believe it's the same with a crossbow as it is with a recurve, combat, or compound, in that there are tournaments and competitions and the targets are similar. Crossbow gets classified with archery due to some similarities in the equipment, but the form is entirely different; crossbow is more like rifle shooting than bow-and-arrow.
