I lost my mother and my brother when I was 15 in two separate car accidents. I was doing well at school. I was a good sportsperson, but at that point, I gave up on all of those things that were there to be done. I couldn't deal with them.

WHAT DOES SPORTSPERSON MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Sportsperson

A sportsperson, is a person trained to compete in a sport involving physical strength, speed or endurance. Sports people may be professional or amateur. Most professional sports people have particularly well-developed physiques obtained by extensive physical training and strict exercise accompanied by a strict dietary regimen. The word "athlete" is a romanization of the Greek: άθλητὴς, athlētēs, one who participates in a contest; from ἂθλος, áthlos, or ἂθλον, áthlon, a contest or feat. The term may be used as a synonym for sportspeople in general, but it also has stronger connotations of people who compete in athletic sports, as opposed to other sporting types such as horse riding and driving. In British English athlete can also have a more specific meaning of people who compete in the sport of athletics.
