Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it is clear that you are having bradycardia(heart rate less than 60 per minute) and needs urgent cardiologist consultation.

Though it is seen that athletes have lower heart rate, you should get following investigations done :-
1. Electrocardiography(ECG).
2. 2-D Echocardiography.
3. Hemoglobin levels.

I hope this is helpful to you.
