    athletics

    I'd like to know which expression to use when I want to say that a person is involved in athletics, when someone is a athlet. Is the phrase "he is occupied with athletics" correct? what's the differnece between "athetics" and "athletism"
    thank you

    He or she is an athlete; they participate in athletics. We would normally say what sport they do: He is a sprinter; she is a long distance runner; he is a javelin thrower; she is a pentathlete.

    Athleticism = 1 fit and good at sport.His athleticism is exceptional. 2 relating to athletics. Athleticism is vital to the health of the nation's sporting world.
