Have low BP. Active in sports. What is wrong with me?

Hello, after a workout session (20min - cardio, 40min - intense weightlifting) my pressure is 135/48, pulse 71. My normal pressure is about 125/65, pulse 55. I am 18 years ols, 150 pounds, did a lot of sports, starting from professional swimming and tennis and finishing with snowboarding and cycling. I feel fine, but a difference for pulse pressure worries me. why could it be and how abnormal it it?

Cardiologist 's  Response
High values during or shortly after exercise due to increased stroke volume, so check at least 3-4 hours after exercise
if high value is consistent - still it can be normal in your case because your heart rate remain low due to your intense exercise
i am giving some list of causing high pulse pressure-
Arteriovenous fistula
Chronic aortic regurgitation
Heart block
Aortic dissection
Raised intracranial pressure

if you want , then can consult with cardiologist
