Athletes & Players
Athletes are people, both professional or amateur, trained in a sport which required them to apply physical skills, strength, and endurance to achieve success in their game of choice. The athlete was a term used to describe a marathoner or runners, but the term has evolved to include players of all competitive games. We use both words (athletes and players) conversely worldwide to describe a sportsman or sportswoman with well-developed physical features resulting from extensive exercise, training, and strict dietary regulations. Athletes are among some of the most recognized humans on the planet, with physical traits that set them apart from the average person. The career of an athlete is often limited to a select handful of prime competitive years before their bodies can no longer compete at the professional level.
