Athletes (sometimes known as sportsmen or sportswomen) are those who participate in one or more sports that require physical stamina, speed, or strength.
Athletes can be amateurs or pros. The majority of elite athletes have exceptionally well-developed bodies because of rigorous exercise, careful dieting, and a lot of physical training.
Athletes are far more prone than the general population to go to massage parlours and pay for services from massotherapists and masseurs due to their demanding physical activity.
Competitors who compete in sports where endurance is more important than strength typically consume fewer calories than other athletes.
A person who excels in several sports is referred to as an "all-round athlete." Jim Thorpe, Lionel Conacher, and Deion Sanders are a few examples of athletes that had a professional career in more than one sport.
The top male and female competitors in the track and field decathlon (males) and heptathlon (females) are customarily given the title of "World's Greatest Athlete." There are ten events in the decathlon: the 100-meter dash, long jump, shot throw, high jump, 400-meter dash, 110-meter hurdles, discus, pole vault, and 1500-meter run. The 100-meter hurdles, high jump, shot put, 200 meters, long jump, javelin, and 800 meters are the seven events that make up the heptathlon.
